Description Vasileios P. Lourdas 2009-08-02 14:42:38 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.4)
Compiler:          gcc version 4.3.3 (Gentoo 4.3.3-r2 p1.2, pie-10.1.5) 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

KMail does not display all the encodings that it used to during the new message window. For example KWrite displays the Western European (ISO 8859-1) encoding in its text editor, whereas KMail does not. How can I select ISO 8859-1 for my outgoing messages?

Why it does not show all kwrite shows, I don't know yet.
In your case you can set the encoding to ISO-8859-15, which is the same
as ISO-8859-1 but includes the EURO sign.

Thanks. So, I guess this is confirmed. Which version did it first appear?

I am now running 4.3.0 from the Gentoo packages and the same bug still exists.

Yes, I see it too. And I'm debugging kmail to find out what happens.
There really seems to be a bug in the KDE core libs...
I'll investigate.
