I removed all the charsets but : 1- utf-8 2- iso-8859-1 from the two chrset lists I've found in mozilla to configure which charset is used when composing a message. If I write a message with only 7 bits characters, its charset is set to us-ascii, neither UTF-8 nor latin1 is used. I guess this is an optimisation, and this is a nice one. If I write a message with 8 bit characters, and some that are not in the latin1 charset (the euro symbol for instance), utf-8 charset is used. That works fine. BUT When I *reply* to the first message : If I introduce an 8bit character that exists in the latin1 charset in my reply, latin1 charset is used. Nice, that also works fine. When I reply to this last message, introducing the euro symbol that does not exist in the latin1 charset then it's the windows 1252 charset that is used, instead of UTF-8 ! I've removed this charset from the two lists (why 2 ?) I've found, so : -there is a third list hidden somewhere (why 3 ???) or -there is a bug in charset selection algorithm Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
