    Sending mail in Unicode is broken


    Sending html mail in Unicode seems broken - at least for Cyrillic encoding.

    Even before sending, in the outbox, the message is already gibberish.
    Ok, changed encoding manually to UTF-8, it looks ok then.
    Edited it and saved in Outbox again: reverts to gibberish again.
    Changed encoding to something else and back to UTF-8: readable again.
    Sent to a gmail account. Received gibberish and no way to choose a correct
    encoding,
    selecting utf-8 or any Cyrillic encoding does not help.

    Details: WinXP SP2 Pro with IE7, fully updated; both current user & default
    OS language is English.

    For now, have to send "as is" or.... use Google mail.
    Duh. The beta is over, but the beta quality still here....

    Regards,

    Have you made sure you've changed the International Settings under
    Tools/Options and the Send tab?

    No I haven't. Why this is neded?
    The default encoding is left as "Western European (ISO)".
