Note that this may not necessarily forced UTF-8, since OE supports encodings
for Chinese characters that you could also use to send the message.

UTF-8 *is* required for languages that do not support such an encoding, like

உலகம் பேச நினைக்கும் போது Unicode பேசுகிறது

On the whole, I would not recommend sending mail using those other
encodings, I believe that people using OE 5.0 and later will be prompted to
install language support just by opening the e-mail! :-)


(the sentence is right, by the way <g>).
