Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Encoding problem

  • Hi all!
    I’m using Contact Form 7 on my multilanguage site (German and Polish) and when user sends email in polish language i receive something like this:

    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
    Nadawca: asda
    Treść wiadomości

    There is no problem with emails in German language. Polish language uses different encoding so that is probably why i get this kind of emails. Is there any way to fix it?

    Try switching to the default theme and deactivating all plugins except Contact Form 7, Contact Form DB, NextGEN Gallery, Wordfence Security, and Yoast SEO.

    Sorry for late response. I tried with no plugins activated except for Contact Form 7, plain email, html email and some other possible solutions but nothing changed 🙁

    So it’s theme?

    Tried several themes without success 🙁

    I have a similar flaw, but I am using German. I have an ultra-simple form and when it is used, the recipient sees the following:

    Antwort an:
    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

    Von: Viktor Steiner <>:
    How does this look?


    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

    is ugly. How can I get rid of it?

    Sorry. My mistake. Invalid email fields.
