CHARSET.CONF(5) sympa 6.2.22 CHARSET.CONF(5)

NAME

charset.conf - Configiration file for legacy character set support by Sympa

DESCRIPTION

In some language environments, legacy encoding (character set) is preferred for e-mail messages: For example "iso-2022-jp" in Japanese language.
charset.conf defines mapping between language context and legacy character set for service messages sent by Sympa. If you want to enable legacy character set support, simply copy sample charset.conf onto configuration directory:
    # cp $DEFAULTDIR/charset.conf $SYSCONFDIR/charset.conf
And set the "legacy_character_support_feature" parameter value in sympa.conf to "on".

Note

If you are planning to upgrade Sympa earlier than 5.3a.8, original charset.conf is required to convert shared documents during upgrade process.

FILES

$DEFAULTDIR/charset.conf
