Error description

  • Customer found that the Plain/Text part of an e-mail from
    Android device would have an encoding specified of us-ascii
    instead of the desired UTF-8.  For many devices us-ascii would
    be fine, but for some devices in different locals, us-ascii is
    not sufficient, for example for DBCS characters, national
    language characters or other local specific special characters.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

    characters.

    for emails from an Android device.
