Description David Jarvie 2010-01-11 14:55:35 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Compiler:          gcc 4.3.2 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

KAlarm should send email messages with
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8?

The problem is, KAlarm's email comes in illegible form, like this:
теÑÑ‚ Ñ Ñ…ÐŸÑ‚ÐµÐ» пПпрПбПвать

See http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=84406&p=140550&hilit=kalarm#p140550

This would apply to both subject and message body.

Fixed for transmission via KMail, for KDE 4.3.5 and KDE 4.4 (SVN commits 1077865, 1077870). I'm still looking into a fix for transmission via sendmail.
Comment 2 David Jarvie 2010-01-22 01:23:39 UTC
Now fixed also for sendmail, and for copying emails into KMail's sent-mail folder (SVN commits 1078244, 1078258, 1078260, 1078263). The full fix is in KDE 4.3.5 and KDE 4.4.
