Hi,

In current Leap (and TW as well I assume) there seems to be a problem when
sending Email notifications in german language: The Umlauts get chopped:

What sould be sent:
Die folgenden Dokumente wurden zum Versand übermittelt und sind auf dem Server
zur erneuten Nutzung verfügbar bis sie automatisch bereinigt werden

What is sent:
Die folgenden Dokumente wurden zum Versand bermittelt und sind auf dem Server
zur erneuten Nutzung verfgbar bis sie automatisch bereinigt werden

Note that the Umlauts are missing.
Mail itself looks OK from the header:
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

In the Script that triggers the mail notification I changed the command to
write into a file:

echo "--$MIMEBOUNDARY--"
) 2>$ERRORSTO | $SENDMAIL -f$FROMADDR -oi -t

changed to

echo "--$MIMEBOUNDARY--"
) 2>$ERRORSTO | cat > /tmp/examine_me.eml

Result: All Umlauts are there

So I logged in as root (as well as uucp) and tried from the command line:
echo abcäöü | mail -s "Täst" $email

-> worked as well.

Any idea where the problem could come from?
Mail agent is postfix

Thanks
Axel
