Mail::Sender character set/encodingby Rodster001 (Pilgrim)
|on Mar 12, 2009 at 19:31 UTC||Need Help??|
Rodster001 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am using Mail::Sender and when I send an email, characters like ’ (hex 0x92), and ” (hex 0x94), etc are displaying as a □.
I should mention that the display problem actually happens in Outlook. If I "view source" on the email message, and open it in a text editor, the correct character is there (and has the same hex value). So, I am guessing this is a problem with not with the actual encoding, but a missing header so Outlook will display properly? I also forwarded the message to my Gmail account and in that case the characters are just being omitted. So, I really don't know, but I am stuck.
Anyway, if anyone knows a solution to this it would be much appreciated!
Code below. Note: I have tried both the SendEnc and SendLineEnc methods and encoding types both "quoted-printable" and "7bit". All with the same result.
Thanks for your help!
