Thank you for your development. your software help me a lot.

The problem is that character corruption certainly happened for me to reply new mail message based referenced received mail after reply button in Usermin.
The charaset corruption are include title and sender name in Japanese and body and attach etc.from referenced message.

OS:Debin 5.0 Lenny based on UTF-8
Usermin:1.430 Charaset:EUC-JP

    This phenomenon will happen that the mail are written multibyte characters and "Content Type" is iso-2022-JP, I think.

    charaset corruption is not happen when referenced mail are consist in English and singlebyte characters only.

    I sent a Japanese message sample. Need you a lot of other sample?
    I felt Japanese messages encoded by ISO-2022-JP cause character corruption in reply maybe.

    Thanks for the PDF. Could you also send me an actual email that is getting corrupted too?

    Also, Webmin normally uses the EUC-JP character set for Japanese .. if you use that when sending email, does the same issue happen?

    Good evening jcameron.

    I answer your question.

    1. Example for corrputing Japanese characters.

    2. >does the same issue happen?
    No character corruption happened on message which was sent from Usemin , in reply mode.Outlook 2007 and Thunderbird 2.x~3.0 cause character corruption.
