    Lightbulb Email programs and UTF-8 encoding

    I got a quick question about plain text encoding (text/plain in headers) for email apps regarding the UTF-8 standard. In the past, I have always used ISO-8859-1 but recently somebody told me that I should use UTF-8 for emailing out of the USA and to further push a more compatiable format instead of ISO or US-ASCII.

    Seeing this, I took at look at a few apps and I see that Outlook 2000/2002, Outlook Express 5/6 and Netscape 6/Mozilla all support UTF-8 in their email apps. I did not however check Eudora, Opera, and AOL for compatiablity.

    Does anyone have a list of known email apps that still don't support UTF-8 and if you know or have a link to a site that has a list... that would be kosher

    Thanks for your time

    Well,

    i didnīt actually find a list of email-progs which donīt support utf-8. I know that OE and Outlook support it.

    For additional infos it might be useful to check Unicode...they should have a list of progs supporting it...
