#1412 meta: Encoding of From header in email notifications broken
To be clear: this issue refers to issues.prosody.im, not to Prosody itself.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Add a comment to an issue using a name containing Umlauts.
2. Receive the email.
What is the expected output?
The name is displayed properly and correctly.
What do you see instead?
Mojibake. In my case, I see
From: "Jonas SchÃ¤fer via Prosody IM" <email@example.com>
From: "Jonas Schäfer via Prosody IM" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Please provide any additional information below.
The copy-pasted lines above are from the "view source" function of my MUA. Other mails with my name have stuff like this:
From: Jonas =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Sch=E4fer?= <…>
From: Jonas =?utf-8?q?Sch=C3=A4fer?= (XSF Editor) <…>
So probably the tracker needs a proper MIME writer, with escaping and declaration of UTF-8 content.
Thanks for reporting.I feel like this should be handled by LuaSockets SMTP library, not users of it
