Scrambled Mail Addresses

Recently my webmail client started to show scrambled e-m,ail adresses, when sent fom within the webmail client. A little while ago, it was working OK.

If i send an e-mail from outside dreamhost to a DH account, it will display ok, but when i reply or forward, the person who recieves it gets a funky sender adress, and if its DH recipient then all of the adresses are become weird. It’s really annoying, because at some point, one cannot reply or forward mails easily, and more important some spam filters kill the e-mails.

Here are some sshots:

Any help on solutioning this ould be really aperciated

Your screen shots return 404 errors, but very strange problem. In web mail there are settings for what the return address shows as - check your options. If not, is there a chance that you have a plugin of some sort in your browser that is interfering?

Past that I’d contact support and ask them to check and see if your mail server is misconfigured.

no, tested on 3 diferent browsers already. Anyway, I isolated the problem it seems, i’m using UTF8 encoding in my webclient, and my identity is stored and sent with that encoding. Since my name has a tilde, it’s scrambling things up. I removed the tilde (Replaced Matías with Matias) and it works well. I can’t remove tildes tho. Any solution to this? Could it be that some config has been changed in php and now php doesn’t support UTF8 very well?

btw the server filtered my server and replaced a bad word with foo :stuck_out_tongue: < Web Client < Thunderbird

I setup a test account if you want to try:
pass: testing

And i did a test. Headers should be these

From: Tésting Account
Recipient: Matías Halles, boarder@neofusion

Now the full header.

Some text…


Looks like something wrong in your RoundCube installation … Have you ever tried DreamHost provided Squirrelmail, does it support tildes? Maybe it is that RoundCube doesn’t support it.

Just a punt…

Instead of: Matías Halles
Try: "Matías Halles"
Or: (Matías Halles)

A final punt (low confidence): Mat\ías Halles

While these tricks have not worked for me every time, all of them have worked in some cases.
