We're going to need more information here. In general, this should work correctly. Can you share a complete message (including headers) which reproduces this?

I managed to reproduce the bug: https://paste.sr.ht/%7Ebn4t/211fb696f6c33b4d14cecb67d792294de8d60c9c

The message is supposed to say:

Hällö Wörld

Ä Ö Ü ä ö ü

I replaced the sender email with "redacted" since it's a personal mail address.

So far I only managed to reproduce this using outlook. With other mail clients this doesn't seem to happen as far as I'm aware.

~bn4t 9 months ago

Sorry for the messed up formatting.

Message says:

Hällö Wörld

Ä Ö Ü ä ö ü

Would be nice if in the future it will be possible to edit comments.

Which backend do you use ~bn4t?

I think I've found the bug at least for maildir / notmuch

~bn4t 9 months ago

I'm not sure. The default one.

How can I find this out?

~labrat 9 months ago

Well, in your accounts.conf you have a source url.

That tells you if it's imap (imap: / imaps:) or the other options (maildir:, notmuch:)

~bn4t 9 months ago

Ah, thanks. I use imap.

Thanks for fixing!
