I have installed Roundcube through SimpleScrips and the installation seems to be OK.
However, Roundcube (and Horde for that matter) do(es) not display the french language accents properly. A ? appears where an accented letter was used. I am francophone and as you know, there are accents in the french language such as é, è, à, â etc...
Here is an example sentence which illustrates what I got in Roundcube:
Je suis ennuy� par la m�me chose qu'hier en soir�e.
This should have appeared in the test email as :
Je suis ennué par la même chose qu'hier en soirée.
Would anyone know if there is a fix to this problem ?
There are no problems with Gmail or Sympatico (a licensed hotmail) for example. Also, I have installed ExtCalendar 2 on Bluehost through SimpleScripts and I have no problem with the accents there when I write an event in french..
There must be a fix for this somewhere. Maybe a box to check, or some option somewhere which must be turned on or something.
If anyone can shed some light, it would be most appreciated. I know that there are some very knowledgeable people posting on this forum and your help folks is always appreciated.
Are you in Quebec, France or somewhere else? My real name is Michel, I am from Quebec but I have been living in Boston for 2 years now.
I had the same problem last year. That was before we could use "SimpleScripts" to install software on BlueHost. I have installed RoundCube manually. I had to add 1 line in the main dot inc dot php file in the config folder in the round cube folder. The line is simple and makes a lot of sense: $rcmail_config['charset'] = '8859-1'; I don`t know how the default install by SimpleScript configures the charset, if there is already a line for the charset then change it to 8859-1 otherwise add the line.
Thanks Michel for caring to help.
I am also from the province of Quebec (Verdun). I checked what you said and here is what I found in the file you are referring to:
// Use this charset as fallback for message decoding
$rcmail_config['default_charset'] = 'ISO-8859-1';
It appears to be there but not written EXACTLY like in your post. What do you think ? Note that I am new to all this and I find this a bit overwhelming (for me anyway).
Bonjour Barbouille de Verdun,
I don't have much time left tonight, need to go to work.
What you have should work IMO.
You might want to search on http://roundcubeforum.net/
There might be more info on the RoundCube forum.
I (and several friends) have been using RoundCube (hundreds of emails per day) and it works great!
