Hi, I'm not fully up-to-date on the issue, but I did have this note in my archives, which I can't find the original source, but here it is:
Non USASCII characters *in headers* require special encoding: 1) use Encode; $x="...."; $x_for_header = Encode::encode('MIME-Q', $x); MIME-Q is the best for mostly USASCII strings MIME-B is the best for mostly non USASCII strings 2) Add one extra header to *fully* declare body encoding: print MAIL "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n";
Hope it helps.

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
