If you put a diacritic char, like è or ë, in the -f tag, you will get a strange "from" line in the email.

This is the command line:

blat test.txt -t daniel@praclox.nl -from "Daniël Krol <daniel@praclox.nl>"

The "from" line in the email looks like "=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Dani=EBl=20Krol=20 [daniel@praclox.nl]".

I've tried this with different blat versions and with different servers.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Regards,
Daniel

    That is how is should be sent, according to the RFCs. Which email reader program are you using, and what version is that?

    I checked Outlook Express, and it does the same thing that Blat does.

    To: =?iso-8859-1?Q?Dani=EBl_Krol?= <chip.programmer@att.net>

    Is it possible that what Blat sends (ISO-8859-1) is causing your email reader a problem when it might be looking for iso-8859-1 to be in lowercase?
