My web app has a form and then it sends emails via PHPMailer. But it didn’t work for Unicode messages.
I added accept-charset=”utf-8″ to the <form> tag. Then I changed $CharSet setting from default ‘iso-8859-1’ to ‘utf-8’. That worked for Unicode email body, but not for Unicode subject. In order to get Unicode subjects work I had to update PHPMailer to version 2.0.2.
var $CharSet = ‘utf-8′; //’iso-8859-1’;
var $ContentType = ‘text/plain’;
var $Encoding = ‘8bit’;
