Emails may be 8bit, not 7bit

In the 4.1.2 distribution, many (all?) email templates in templates/ specify

  Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

But when localization is used and other locale messages are inserted, there may be non-ASCII characters among them. Therefore, the Content-Transfer-Encoding in these files should be set to 8bit. (It still won't work with locales that cannot be represented in ISO-8859-1, but at least it covers more cases than before.)

Actually, I got aware of that problem when I used German texts, since they have umlauts.

If someone with an interest in using 8 bit characters would like to develop a patch, I'd be quite happy to apply it.


A patch is attached.

Note that attached patch also removes emailing the WIKIWEBMASTER

Note the


I am not sure we want that change sneaked in as well so watch out with the patch attached.

yeah, i did notice the bcc's and i'm not including those. since all of the other changes were changing everything from '7bit' -> '8bit', that's what i'm going to check in. including changing all of the plugins that also have email templates

Sorry, I just did a diff on my own installation and forgot that I also discarded the emails to WIKIWEBMASTER. It's clearly not connected to the issue of this ticket, which is to do an s/7bit/8bit/ on all email-relevant template files. (I changed the Bcc in our installation, since I prefer to only get emails on successful registrations, not on every registration attempt.)
