bo: but even fiddling with those settings in Thunderbird is sometimes futile as the encoding as set in the email overrides whatever is set at the receiving end.
Yes! I've had those sort of problems in TBird too...

I'm using an older version of TBird (3.1.15, if it still works, why change? '-}}) and I found that selecting "Other Languages" (Tools > Options > Display > Formatting > Advanced > "Fonts For:" section) seems to work better. Also in the "Character Encodings" section in "Advanced", I have "Incoming Mail:" set to "Western (ISO-8859-1)" and "when possible, use default character encoding in replies" UNchecked.
