raw example message
Since 1.8.4 release, we have noticed an issue with messages encoded as "text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1".
The attached message (234186-763254.msg.gz), which can be injected into Zimbra, is encoded as :
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
and content looks correct (for example, "â" is encoded 0xe2 which is correct)
However, on the iPhone, all accented characters appears as squares. (see screenshot photo.PNG)
=> It doesn't happen if message is encoded utf-8
=> It seems it didn't happen on release 1.8.3
=> Message is correctly displayed in webmail, zimbra desktop and outlook

Fixed in 1.8.5, default android implementation is still affected (the encoding type is simply ignored), there is little we can do aside re-encode the email.
Fix pushed to production, the package you can download from http://www.zextras.com/zextras-download-for-zimbra.html now includes the fix.
That's right, the zextras.jar the a freshly downloaded zextras_suite-latest.tgz shows differences....
That's totally weird (and look quite unprofessional...) because the release number hasen't changed and the changelog hasen't been updated.
Except comparing the old and the new tar contents, it's impossible to know there was a change...
I'll install this new version tonight
in cases like this we prefer to build a fixed package and make it available for download without starting a full release process in order to avoid creating a commotion for 1 or 2 minor changes.
All bugfixes are communicated "officially" in the next available version's Changelog.
