Description Gappy 2007-07-20 10:09:27 UTC
Version:           KMail 1.9.5 (Using KDE 3.5.5) (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          gcc-Version 3.4.6 (Gentoo 3.4.6-r2, ssp-3.4.6-1.0, pie-8.7.10) CFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium-m -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
OS:                Linux

The mail contains a text that is ISO-8859-15 encoded and a vcard that is UTF-8 encoded.
KMail displays the mail correctly with ISO-8859-15 but the vcard is displayed wrong.
It seems that KMail uses also ISO-8859-15 for the vcard instead of UTF-8.
-> Two Byte UTF-8 chars are displayed as two characters.
e.g. "ä" instead of "ä"

I guess KMail has a limitation of displaying two different encodings in one mail.

The mail was sent by Mozilla Thunderbird.

Here are the snippets of the MIME headers:

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-15
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit


Content-Type: text/x-vcard; charset=utf-8;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: attachment;

The vcard...
