observe by my email.

Well, I was noticing a strange behavior which I don't yet discovered if
it is due the Mail provider itself (outlook.com) or some setting on my
Thunderbird mail client.

One fact I discovered just now is that on systems (personal computers)
wherein I set the Character Encoding = UTF-8, some strange fonts are
displayed on my e-mail messages sent on the list, when I receive back
from opensuse-factory:

Example 1:

--
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.
???{.n???+?????????????????????????????????}???-????????????{.n???+??????????????????Ǩ??????r??????i???m??????0??????ޙ?????????????????????}???-????????????
ޮ???^???ˬz???

It happens when mail software (such as that which runs the mailing
list) simply inserts its own signature in its own encoding without
paying attention to the encoding the user has chosen.


So this means that sometimes you have seen same strange fonts on other
users email posting on this ML?

That should be comfortable to know.

Thanks and regards,
