    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 Schäfer via Prosody IM" <issues@prosody.im> instead of: From: "Jonas Schäfer via Prosody IM" <issues@prosody.im> 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
