Hi there,

I have a problem with my old easysieve-script and a new cyrus(2.1.15) 
installation. If I produce an autorespond message like this:

Date: Mon, 12 Jul 2004 11:23:04 +0200
X-Sieve: CMU Sieve 2.2
From: <test at outerspace.local>
To: <dste at outerspace.local>

the email client shows only

� ae � oe � ue

in the message view. If I change the clients character encoding from 
UTF-8 to ISO-8895-x I can see the umlauts. Then I tried the following:
I used iconv and changed the encoding of my default.script from ISOxxx 
to UTFxxx and then I could see the umlauts too.

Now I have two questions:

Can I change "Content-Type:" somewhere in sieve to ISOxxx ?
Or how can I save the default.script directly with UTFxxx encoding (is 
it more a kind of linux configuration issue like save all text files 
allways in UTF)?

I hope someone can give me a hint. Thanks in advance.
