in thread encoding for sendmail

The normal fix for the "wide character' error is to binmode on the filehandle, in your case the pipe filehandle. I was going to mention that in my first reply, but thought it might mess with sendmail's line by line reading off the pipe.

The node I referred you to, Sending a UTF-8 (Unicode) E-mail has not been deleted, a reply to it was deleted, probably some recent spam. I can't say whether the code is buggy, but it does demonstrate the problem of encoding the email for utf8.

    Right now, that is what I'm doing (binmod'ing the pipe, putting the encoding layer, there), I just don't know if that's the way to go, in terms of what the sendmail command is likely to want.

    I should really have code examples up with my initial post. I may post again w/'em
