Handling of charsets (e.g. UTF-8) when using external editor.
Description (last modified by damato)
When receiving an email with a charset that is not supported by the font system (I think, I don't know how YAM is detecting this charset), YAM shows a question mark for every character that is not standard ASCII. When YAM passes this mail to an external program or saves as a file it still replaces the characters with question marks. YAM should not replace these characters in these situations.
For example, my friend recently sent me an email in UTF-8 with an attachment. Their MUA decided to package the text as base64. In YAM when I read this mail I get "????? ?? ????" etc in the message window. If I save the displayed message I get the same "????? ?? ????" etc, if I save the raw message I get base64. If I try to reply and call an external editor that can handle the character coding, YAM passes it the "????? ?? ????" text instead of the original text.
Just FYI, this did not occur in YAM 2.4.
