Apple mail and Outloook Express

If Outlook Express users complain that your emails are “garbled” or unreadable it could be that Apple’s Mail does not properly declare the encoding used.

Issue the following command on the commandline to set another default encoding:

defaults write com.apple.mail NSPreferredMailCharset “ISO-8859-15”
(alternatively use UTF-8, UTF-16 or ISO-8859-1)
