Funny you should mention mutt -- I was just about to post something about it. I use mutt all the time, and it usually works fine, but *sometimes* it shows the 8-bit characters as they should be in an original message, but as ? in messages quoting that message, or vice versa. I've set my LC_CTYPE to en_US.ISO-8859-1 and LANG to C, and I've noticed the problem occurs on the Linux console and in Konsole (KDE pre2.2). Anyone know how to make it show them right all the time? Is it a problem with people's mailers not marking encoding correctly? -- Eric Christopherson / *Aiworegs Ghristobhorosyo
