Subject [jira] [Commented] (MIME4J-228) Quoted-printable text part without encoding has broken characters
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 13:37:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-228?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13662973#comment-13662973

Clément Denis commented on MIME4J-228:

OK, it's clear now why it defaults to us-ascii (the value seemed arbitrary at first).

I was a bit confused by this issue, because I thought the quoted-printable encoding was charset-independant,
but obviously it's not !

I'll open a improvement request.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: parser (core)
>    Affects Versions: 0.7.2
>         Environment: Windows 7 64bits
> Oracle Java 1.7.0_17

>         Attachments: quotedprintablewithoutencoding.mime
> The attached message is a multipart message with a single part in a quoted printable
format, but no specific charcter encoding.
> When no content encoding specified in a body part, the DefaultMessageBuilder defaults
to us-ascii. But the output of the QuotedPrintableInputStream used to decode the text is actually
ISO_8859_1 (at least in my environment).
> Quoted printable text should not depend on the encoding of the text, so the text should
be fine.
