Support » Fixing WordPress » Blog by Email, Swedish letters, “Å”, “Ä” and “Ö” not shown!

  • eriohm


    Well after some tweaking with the content not showing at all I finally solved that problem. But when I send a e-mail with the Swedish letters, “Å”, “Ä” and “Ö” the letters and the text folowing is not shown in the post but is shown when u look at the wp-mail.php.

    I guess it is something have to do with the encoding but i don’t know where I should make that edit.

    Please, someone help med!! =)

    The encoding of your emails has to be the same as your blog. WP’s default encoding is utf-8. Check the email client’s settings.



    Well, that did not make a different!

    Any updates on this? Think I have tried everything possible to make this work!?

    bump. anyone? how do you set up your email encoding anyhow? Could the encoding be set to latin or something else than utf-8? How the database will handle it? should i send in plain text or rich text?

    set charset to latin1 from admin or modify the header file. If that doesn’t work remove charset from the congig file as well and leave it blank.

    I wouldn’t call that a proper solution. Should be working with utf8 too. This is a matter of better coding of wp-mail. But seems it doesn’t matter to if this works “outside” us or not :s
