      Hi!

      I want to set one of my xmls to use 7-bit encoding. How do I do it? Change

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
      to
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="7-bit" standalone="yes"?> , or what?

      Thanks.
      C.

      While i’m not sure why you’d want to, you can change the encoding to “ASCII” — this will grossly limit the character set you can use, though, and I can’t be certain it will work (or what benefit you’d get from doing it).

      Additionally, if you’re talking about the “Content-Transfer-Encoding” email header, “7bit” is assumed unless it’s specified otherwise.

      For more info: https://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc1341/5_Content-Transfer-Encoding.html

      Yup, that’s what I meant. I’m stuck with an API which wouldn’t work with Thunderbird until I changed the encoding, and I still can’t figure out how to use it with any of the Android clients I’m used to.

      In any case, I really wanted to use it with swithmail (on Windows, obviously).

      Thanks a lot.

      Are you having an issue with something not seeing it as 7bit? I’m curious now, and wondering if i misread that w3 page and it’s actually using something different.

      It’s hard to tell in the real world right now, because another part of the whole system is causing problems, but it looks OK. The old Clickatell server, which is the system which is picky about text encoding, says it processed the email with no problems.

      The relevant part of the Thunderbird messages (which worked yesterday) is

      Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

      The corresponding part of the swithmail messages is

      Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

      Thanks again.

      It turns out that swithmail out of the box works perfectly with the old “Developer Central” API at Clickatell.com, which is extremely finicky.

      Thanks!

      Glad to hear it!
