Description Arne Schmitz 2002-06-26 09:19:36 UTC
(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package:           knode
Version:           0.7.1 (using KDE 3.0.1 )
Severity:          wishlist
Installed from:    SuSE
Compiler:          gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (SuSE)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.4.17
OS/Compiler notes: 

I post news articles using UTF-8 encoding. But there are many users out there using Outlook Express which does not add a "Content-Type" header field in the default configuration. This way Umlauts and other special characters are broken when I read news because KNode thinks the postings are UTF-8 encoded instead of iso-8859-1 or -15. It would be nice to have a setting for a standard encoding when reading news postings that is different from the default encoding (UTF-8 in my case) of KNode.

It would be cool to be able to select this per account or per group even.

It has long been possible to set a fallback encoding per group.
A fall back per server is requested in bug #198060
