I’ve got a funny microsoft hotmail problem:
I send mails from action mailer with the environment.rb config:
The application runs on a linux server (same problem on Mac OS X).
Now, if I send ä ö ü é è à or other European characters it works
fine for every email client except for the hotmail accounts (the funny
part is, that it is a bug on the hotmail site. It defaults everything
to Windows Latin on the page and ignores the utf-8, except if you
change the encoding manualy to utf-8 in the browser. Of course this
doesn’t work for ie7 but for all other browsers.)
The email source looks like this:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
I tried several workarounds but it didn’t work… (base64, multi-part,
Does anyone has any experience in writing mails through ruby on rails
with European characters to hotmail accounts.

them proper emails. But I realy have no ideas left.
Thanks for any help
