#11924 closed (duplicate)

Email headers always use the default encoding

Reported by: IanLewis Owned by: nobody
Component: Core (Mail) Version: 1.1
Severity: Keywords:

Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


When sending an email, the EmailMessage uses either the messages encoding property or if that isn't available it uses the DEFAULT_ENCODING setting. This behavior should apply to email headers as well. Currently even if a EmailMessage object's encoding property is set the DEFAULT_ENCODING is used to encode email headers.

This means that you cannot send emails with headers encoded in any encoding other than the DEFAULT_ENCODING which is required for some mobile devices (particularly Japanese mobiles) and email readers.
