in textmails the letters öäü would not show correctly.

in the class.phplistmailer.php is the right content:

function add_text($text) {
if (!$this->Body) {
$this->Body = html_entity_decode($text ,ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8' ); #$text;
# $this->Body = $text;
} else {
$this->AltBody = html_entity_decode($text ,ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8' );#$text;

so, what can be the problem?

ok, i´ve send the messege to another e-mail provider. there i can see the text right. it´s also just text-format.

the other e-mail provider is still not correct.

Some users have mentioned having problems with special characters and UTF-8.

One fix suggested in the Portuguese forum consists in changing the charset from UTF-8 to iso-8859-1
Admin main page >> configuration >>
- Charset for HTML messages: iso-8859-1
- Charset for Text messages: iso-8859-1
