Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2a) Gecko/2002091318 The message I am about to attach has MIME words with different charsets in the subject. Those are displayed correctly when receiving the message. Upon reply, though, all characters are set to the same charset, which does not contain both symbols. More precisely, we start with: Subject: =?ISO-8859-15?Q?=A4?= =?ISO-8859-1?Q?=A4?= This is the Euro symbol followed by the general currency symbol. The reply has twice the currency symbol. pi

Another test shows that if the charset in the subject (I again used the Euro symbol) and in the body (I had ISO-8859-1) don't agree, the same problem shows up. The subject of the reply was changed to the currency symbol which has the same position in -1 as the Euro in -15. pi
We support generating MIME header with only one charset. Practically, sending the header with two or more charset is often not recognized by other mailers compare to UTF-8.

I don't understand what you mean by "compare to UTF-8", but it would be OK to use utf-8 to combine both. And for the problem I described in comment 3, this is not relevant at all. pi
With TB 1.5, Win2K, this is working; the reply gets this header: Subject: Re: =?UTF-8?B?4oKswqQ=?= which is ugly, but correct. Since Boris has told me in the past that he's no longer using Mozilla for mail, I'll WFM this, altho I can't confirm the Linux behavior is fixed.
