Subject: Mail encodings not indicated properly

Hi All,

Lately, many of the e-mails I receive via tech-talk seem to contain 
'strange characters', which get displayed correctly only after I 
manually set their encoding to UTF-8. I checked a few of those mails 
and found that they are all sent via Microsoft products and that they 
do not contain an indication of their encoding in the 'Content-type:' 
header field. Since I don't use Windows, I don't know if this is a 
software bug or merely a (common) configuration error. In the latter 
case, I would like to encourage all participants to set up their mail 
clients so that people who don't use UTF-8 as standard encoding can 
still easily read tech-talk traffic (i.e. without manually correcting 
the decoding for each such message in their mail reader).

Thanks,
Ben
