User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; de; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/126.96.36.199 Build Identifier: Version 188.8.131.52 (20061207) I often receive emails from amazon with Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ASCII but it actually contains ISO-8859-1 characters like "ö", "ä", and "ü". So i'd suggest to implement some kind of smart charset detector, that switches from ASCII to ISO-8859-1 (or whatever is appropriate) when the email is wrongly declared as ASCII. (yes, i know the best solution is for amazon to fix their mail program... if anyone has contacts there, this would work too) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
there's already View->Character Encoding->Auto-Detect
this menu has chinese japanes ... universal none of them work as they should if i set it to universal, the encoding looks ok, but i see a lot of garbage (all Mail headers, the plain text part) above the HTML part I'll upload a screenshot soon
and btw: this auto-detection should really auto-detect without me having to tell thunderbird to auto-detect ;)
As it happens, "ASCII" is not a legal charset name. If "us-ascii" were used, the program would display the ISO-8859-1 characters with no problem. And as seen at the dupe, an illegal charset not only fails to set the charset but manages to prevent autodetect as well.
