wp-mail.php utf8 umlauts, post by email

  • Problem:
    Wordpress version 2.5 wp-mail.php cuts off subjects and content containing german umlauts.

    Solution:
    We can fix this by adding utf8_decode to wp-mail.php

    Add this code:

    Line 65
    $subject = utf8_encode($subject);

    Line 154
    $content = utf8_encode($content);
