User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Build ID: 2016012300 Steps to reproduce: Now Thunderbird use win1257 encoding as default for Lithuanian e-mails. Nowadays unicode is dominant everywhere and covers Lithuanian letters. Please set unicode UTF-8 as default for sending Lithuanian e-mails
I don't understand the problem. The default configuration for TB is to send all new e-mail as UTF-8 always. You can set the default: Tools > Options, Display tab, Formatting, Advanced. There is also a checkbox to use this default in replies.
If UTF-8 is already default, then it is OK :) I just remember, that email was sent in another encoding using default config...

We're happy to see a bug closed, however, I don't understand your comment: "that email was sent in another encoding using default config" The default config *is* UTF-8. So how can it be sent in another encoding if you're using default config? Personally, I don't use UTF-8. Being Western European, I use windows-1252. But anyone can decide for themselves ;-)
Maybe your was true, about settings for answering

And I agree, every local that doesn't have any special needs (like japan) should use utf-8 by default. It worked out well for en-US, so the chance that it would work elsewhere is quite slim.
Magnus, do you remember if mailnews.view_default_charset is a fallback after UTF-8 or not? I mean, will UTF-8 be detected automatically in received e-mails, or do I have to set mailnews.view_default_charset to UTF-8 as well for it to work (which I don't think I'm going to do)?
By the way, the reason why I hadn't set UTF-8 as default until now is because IIRC it is an automatic fallback for cases when the alphabet used during composition doesn't fit into the default charset. But yeah, I suppose it's time to let these old 8-bit charsets go.
This bug is about mailnews.send_default_charset. mailnews.view_default_charset is only used as fallback in the rare case the mail do not declare a charset at all (usually buggy auto mail sent by software). What charset that really is is anybody's guess...
Fixed for both Thunderbird and SeaMonkey: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-aurora/lt/rev/06cbfdb2926f http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-aurora/lt/rev/cd5b84404f16 http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-beta/lt/rev/0258f5f2298d http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-beta/lt/rev/1e62d42735b7 I hope I won't forget to sign off my update so that it gets into Thunderbird 45. If not, this will get to wait until the end of this year.
