Created attachment 393099 [details] Mail folder file (3 HTML mails written in UTF-8, with dfifferent charser in <meta>) +++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #505072 +++ This bug is spin-off of "mail in mail folder" case in Bug #505072. Build Identifier: > Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090806 SeaMonkey/2.1a1pre SeaMonkey 2.1(Gecko 1.9.2) Mail&News ignores charset of Content-Type: header and uses charset of <meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" ...> in HTML mail body, when View/Message Body As/Original HTML. So, if incorrect charset is written in <meta> tag, display of HTML mail is garbled, even when correct charset is specified in Content-Type: header. It's "Original HTML" only issue. No problem with "Simple HTML" & "Plain Text". It's Sm 2.1x(1.9.2) only problem. No problem with Sm 2.0x(1.9.1). Sm 2.0x(1.9.1) uses charset in Content-Type: header properly. Note: This kind of mail is probably generated by software such as archiver at mail server. (1) Mail server converts character encoding of mail (to utf-8 in many case) (2) Changes charset parameter in Content-Type: header properly. (3) Don't change charset in <meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" ...> By google search, some bug reports for problem (3) of archiver can be seen.
If <meta> tag is removed, problem doesn't occur. As I wrote Bug 513249 Comment #8, 7/12 build is first build of Sm 2.1. > Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090712 SeaMonkey/2.1a1pre This bug's problem occurs with the first Sm 2.1 build. This bug is special case of Bug 513249 on utf-8 mail. mail written in charset in <meta> Bug 513249 non utf-8 correct charset (so, non utf-8 is set) This bug utf-8 wrong charset (so, non utf-8 is set)
