problem with mail encoding

Hi Oliver,

This is a greate plugin, and I realy appriciate the amount of work you have put into providing nice GUI and extensive help section. Shame on me that I probably would not have come here just to say that, but only becuase I have some problems.

I'm running an hebrew blog using the utf-8 encioding, on WP 2.2.1. My hosting provider do not give access to the php mail function. I have tried to use cforms in the phpmailer mode, but failed with all kind of PHP error message about system files. Then I have decided to do something different and replace the call to the mail function with a call to wp_mail. 

Now I am getting the e-mail, but the hebrew text is displayed as gibrish. Any help will be appriciated, there is no problem with giving you access to the server if it is needed.

Mark, I'm still traveling but will look at your issue once I'm back home.

Mark,  WP 2.2.1 should come with phpmailer support, but in order to use it properly, you need to rename (or better copy) class-smtp.php to class.smtp.php (due to a WP bug). The file resides in the wp-includes directory. It should work then.

Also, phpmailer does have certain limitations which -even when functioning- may hinder you from properly connecting to your local SMTP server.
