Well, I use kmail and that uses a list of charsets ( 8859-1 and 8859-15) until 
it finds a match.

I x-checked the mail with the webfrontend, and it contains already "À", so I 
feel that the source of the mail might be wrong.

On the other hand, I use sendmail/postfix to post to this list as well as the 
MTA for hylafax.
Can you maybe point me to the point where the message is generated? If it is a 
script one could add a line to log the subject.
