I supposed that EBCDIC was not being used now... :-)
Seriously, I recommend you looking at section 05.16 in the MH FAQ.
I do not know what front-end are you using but there are probably
some good workarounds in section 2 of the EXMH FAQ too.

Perhaps you should read question 05.16 (How can I convert quoted-printable
to 8-bit in quoted text in replies) from the MH FAQ.
Scan now decodes RFC-2047 headers. I am not sure about using no us-ascii
ISO charsets in email headers. But the "From:" part of the header is
probably the only place you want more advanced encodings.

Thanks, but I am not an English-speaking user. In fact, that is the
reason stops me from going to the United States, my english skills
are low. I live in Spain, and my computers run ISO 8859-1. I am
looking for a post-doc in USA, but I believe that it will be a
Take a look at the MH FAQ question about converting quoted-printable
characters to 8-bit. Perhaps it will help you.

I understand your problem... I believe you will need to read question
05.16 from the MH FAQ and section 2 of the exmh FAQ, if you are
running exmh. I hope you will find some useful information here.
Quote:> Where? I cannot find any information about setting it.
I send emails with accent marks in the body of the messages, I never
tried 8-bit characters in the "From:" line of the header. Take a
look at the Request for Comments 2047. Perhaps the exmh FAQ will
help you even using another front-end to nmh.

Thanks, I hope it so!
