Subject [jira] [Commented] (EMAIL-104) The system property "mail.mime.charset" is not applied to contents.
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2011 02:21:10 GMT


Hiroshi Ikeda commented on EMAIL-104:

I forget many things about several months ago, and I find my memo which says:
If you call MimeMessage/MimeBody.setContent directly, instead of setText, then the system
property "mail.mime.charset" is not used. HtmlEmail and SimpleEmail in Commons Email call
the setContent methods.

> Both of JavaMail and Commons Email encode subjects and personal names with the system
property "mail.mime.charset" when no charsets are specified via methods. Also they encode
attached filenames with the property when the other system property "mail.mime.encodefilename"
is set (regardless of RFC). On the other hand, JavaMail encodes text contents with the property
via setText methods when no charsets specified, but Commons Email doesn't encode the contents
via setMsg/setTextMsg/setHtmlMsg methods. The partial difference of the behaviors makes confusion.
