utf-8 mail encoding problem

The mails sent from FogBUGZ use UTF-8 encoding, however, there seems to miss the Content-Type header. Therefore, those mails cannot be correctly read if there is non-English content.

Sorry i forgot to mention it.
I am using  FogBUGZ Version 3.1.17 (DB 328)  on FreeBSD 5.1R, Apache 2.0.48, PHP 4.3.4.

Both in notifications and changes.

Same problem here. Fogbugz 3.1.17 (DB 328), Linux, Apache 1.3.29, php 4.3.4.

They are bugmails incoming to mailboxes, and then they keep that way in replies an so on. (diamond symbols with a "?" inside)

I'll release an update shortly for the PHP version to fix this.  I am still working on a workaround for the Windows version.

we're using 3.1.9(DB328) with Jet, and we encounter similar problem, too. The mail client is Notes, and the language used in traditional Chinese.

I tried the mail fucntion of fogbugz recently, and it seems to have some problem too.

The email notification is encoded in UTF-8 correctly, but the mail displayed on web page of the case can't show the mail body is correct encoding.

Here are some headers:
Subject: =?BIG5?B?tPq41XRlc3Q=?=
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="BIG5"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit


-----
The body is written in big5.
