Description

When PHPMailer was updated to 2.0.2 - http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/8762/trunk/wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php, the charset has been changed to "iso-8859-1". It used to be "UTF-8"
line 50 of /wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php

var $CharSet           = 'iso-8859-1';

Should be:
!php
var $CharSet = "UTF-8";
}}}

Sorry for the mis-formatting.

line 50 of /wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php

var $CharSet = 'iso-8859-1';

It should be

var $CharSet = 'UTF-8';

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We always set the correct charset in wp_mail(): http://trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-includes/pluggable.php#L404

Since we don't have other patches to phpmailer, we should stay as close to the upstream version as possible.
