Force Mail.app to always send UTF-8 messages
Authored by: justice on Aug 13, '07 08:14:00AM
This does work, it's just not obvious, as the change affects what "Automatic" is defined to be. After running the defaults command, I see Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8; delsp=yes; format=flowed in the message headers, whereas before I had Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed.

I should also mention that I didn't do this as root, just as my regular user. I don't see why you would need to do it as root unless perhaps you wanted to make the change for all users on your system.
