sendmail MsgContentCharset property
Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page
Applies to
SendMail component.  

Declaration
property MsgContentCharset: String// 'iso-8859-1' by default  

Description
The MsgContentCharset property determines the charaters set used in the text of e-mail message. This parameter always included to the message to allow the e-mail client to determinate which charset should be used to display the message.  
 
Note
iiwarning You should programmatically handle conversion of text to required code table if the content charset of e-mail is different than charset used on typing a message. Otherwise the text mey appears to be broken. (FYI: 'iso-8859-1' is the standard Western European code table, AFAIK, 'iso-8859-1' is the same as 'us-ascii'.)  
 
tip The SendMail automatically converts the text from Windows to KOI8 table ('koi8-r' is the standard Russian charset used in e-mail messages), if the When MsgContentCharset = 'koi8-r'. (So Russian programmers may do not worry about this.)
