    Default How to send email in a different encoding besides the default utf-8?

    I'm trying out v5.04 and will have users with different native languages (English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, German, and Spanish.)

    Sending out emails defaults to utf-8 encoding. For example, the mail header that the recipient receives from my zimbra server shows:

    Content-type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"


    How can each user change their default outgoing emails to be encoded in, say Shift-JIS, instead of utf-8?

    Default

    This can be controlled by the account/COS LDAP attribute zimbraPrefMailDefaultCharset. I don't believe that it's settable via the Preferences > Composing page, so you'll have to set it for your users for now.

    If you'd like to see this setting exposed on the Preferences > Composing page, please file an enhancement request in bugzilla!

    Default

    Enhancement request: 26620

    Btw, is this the right command?
    > zmprov mc default zimbraPrefMailDefaultCharset iso-8859-1

    Also, does that attribute change the charset for all users?
    How can I make it so that Jack has utf-8 as his default, Jill has S-JIS, and John has iso-8859-1?

    Default

    To do it by account, you modify the account instead of modifying the COS. We'll use the setting on the account, or the setting on the COS if there's no setting on the account, or utf-8 if neither is set.
