iso-8859-1 not there? French characters are being borked


Sometimes I have to send emails to french people from my server. However those emails come up all weird. Example and come back as é and â I can only assume that this is because my locale is looking to UTF-8 rather than iso8859-1 (which the email needs to be sent in). Any help would be great.

Well, I fixed it. For anyone who is wondering, in httpd.conf I had AddDefaultCharset UTF-8 where it should have read AddDefaultCharset iso8859-1 Hope that helps someone else out there!

Hello,

A similar question from a country where some speak French and others, like myself, like French music. Roch Voisine and others.

Now what I do is this: I rip the original cd (yes, the original), and I copy the files to a usb stick. And, as you said, the characters with an accent are mis formed.

Any idea?

Grand merci

Koen Plessers

As for that side of things, I'd assume it's the charset on your local PC. You can look in /etc/sysconfig/i18n and see if you (have that file) and if it helps. Other than that, you'd need to change your charset. I believe this can be done with the locale command.
