Hello,

I'm experiencing problems with emails that are sent from web pages to Horde 3.0.2. The problems occur when using:
1) PHP's mail() function
2) FormMail CGI-scripts, like Matt Wright's FormMail

When opening such emails all German and Scandinavian letters (ä, ö, å) are converted to Chinese letters, question marks, 䬬 symbols etc. However, when choosing "reply" it all looks as it should.

Here is an email I received yesterday:
Subject:
NICLAS vill tipsa dig om n姯t

Message:
Hej!

Jag vill tipsa dig om en ny tj䮳t,
som Du finner p堼a Dagens Industris hemsida

H䬳ningar

Niclas


And here is how it looks when I click the "reply" button:

Subject:
Re: NICLAS vill tipsa dig om n姯t

Message:
Hej!

Jag vill tipsa dig om en tjänst,
som Du finner på Dagen Industris hemsida

Hälsningar

Nicklas


There is no problem with "normal" emails that are being sent from one email address to another. It only happens with emails that have been sent through php or cgi.

With kind regards

We have the problem with php mail().

English mails are fine but Horde won't work other language via php mail().
