    On an unrelated point of encoding -- wrong! You are sending a
    message in charset "UTF-8" with a signature containing an unconverted
    character from the Latin-1 charset. I don't use OE very often, but it
    looks as though you need to create a separate UTF-8 encoded signature
    file to attach to messages you send in UTF-8, since I doubt if any
    mailer is going to tolerate this mixture, and there is no way your OE
    can guess that your signature is iso-8859-1 encoded.


    PS. This message is _not_ sent with charset UTF-8
