history, in the first line under Rahul's salutation, the first 3 extraneous characters
are where I have inserted a Tab, the other instances in that text are just Spaces, so
something is doing a horrible translation.
I think I need to correct your statement......
When sending to fedoraproject.org
domain I have configured T-Bird to send *only*
Just for my benefit how have you configured Thunderbird to do this? I
used to do this with Mandriva but I can't find where to do this in the
version I am using now. The only option I can see that might be close,
but it is a global option, is Options->Delivery Format which I currently
have set to Auto Detect.
Now, in checking, =A0=C2 quoted printable does decode to Â. If, in T-Bird, you open
Rahul's message in a new window and then change "View-->Character
Encoding" from UTF-8 to ISO8859-1 the Â will be shown.
view-->Character Encoding set to Unicode and I see those
characters in Fred's Mail but not in Rahul's. I have opened Rahul's mail
in a new tab and switched the encoding to Western and i shows the
characters as you said, what I have also noticed is that in Fred's reply
there are more of those characters than what there is in Rahul's mail.
For example, in the first line under the salutation where I used a Tab,
in Rahul's mail there are 2 of the characters in question, but in Fred's
response there are 3, which makes it look like there are multiple
factors at play.
So, I wonder why mutt is ignoring the charset=UTF-8. I also wonder why Rahul's
client is inserting the qp string.
But, I don't think it is worth the time (certainly not in this thread) to take it
You are right, it is vastly OT for this thread.
