Emails in various languages

To send mail in non-English language, text encoding must be specified.

Encoding is a method for presenting characters in digital form by mapping sequences of code values of into sequences of bytes, for example, ASCII, Unicode, and Windows 1252.

Example of sending email CHARSET parameter:

C:\>febootimail -FROM john@sender.com -TO info@recipient.com -MSG Sending mail message with german language text encoding! -CHARSET iso-8859-1

Note! In the example above, localhost is used as SMTP mail server. Usually, it is required to specify SMTP server manually using SMTP parameter. Server authentication is performed with AUTH, USER and PASS parameters. Example with authentication:

C:\>febootimail -FROM david@sender.com -TO ryan@example.com -SUBJ Unicode example with authentication -TEXT Email text in different languages -SMTP mail.example.com -AUTH AUTO -USER david -PASS *** -CHARSET UTF-8
