Description nimok 2007-07-16 16:14:08 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

The list of charsets specified for composed mails is not taken into account when KMail runs embedded in Kontact and utf-8 (default charset on my system) is used for all sent mails according to the header: Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
This happens independent of the characters used in the mail.

If KMail is not embedded in Kontact everything works fine.

The same for KDE 3.5.8 KMail 1.9.6 Kontact 1.2.4
Comment 2 Pascal Vandeputte 2014-02-28 13:55:05 UTC
This seems to be an old bug... still I experienced this today (4.12.2).

In my case, after moving utf-8 to the top of the list, mails were still sent using the old settings until I restarted Kontact.
Comment 3 Laurent Montel 2014-02-28 17:40:24 UTC
I confirm it.
I will investigate why when we change list it needs to restart kmail before to use it
