German characters not displaying in $MailSubject

Hi Ray,

I have $MailSubject set to:

$MailSubject = "Anfrage bezüglich der Zurücksetzung Ihres Passwortes auf";

but the ü are not displayed correctly (Anfrage bezüglich der Zurücksetzung Ihres Passwortes auf when the email arrives. I can get them to display correctly in the email body by using the accented character ü but this does not work for the $MailSubject

I have tried setting the page to use UTF-8 but this does not seem to help

Can you point me in the right direction.

The email server behavior also has language encoding. Did you set that to utf-8 as well?

Was unaware that the server behaviour had language encoding. Found the setting and applied UTF-8 and that has fixed the issue.

Many thanks.
