My ActionMailer receives emails fine. I can access the headers, body and
attachment(s). However, this only works flawlessly when the emails are
in the US-ASCII charset:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; delsp=yes; format=flowed
When they’re either in windows-1252 or iso-8859-1, the non-ascii
characters are misrepresented or simply printed as question marks. Has
anyone succesfully received emails in charsets other than US-ASCII? No
API docs, manuals or wikis mention this. The only TMail doc I could find
(from 2004) mentions that the author is not planning to add i17n (sic)
support because it’s too complex for him. I don’t know what that means.
As an aside, internationalisation and hi-ascii character sets seem to be
an afterthought in Rails. Am I alone in this?
