You probably have ISO-8859-1 in:
Configuration -> Common Preferences -> Display ->
Encoding -> Outgoing character encoding
So when you've copy-pasted some Unicode symbols into
Sylpheed's "Compose" window and pressed "Send",
Sylpheed tries to convert your messeage into
ISO-8859-1 but fails because some of the symbols are
not present in this encoding. It then asks you if
you'd like it to send the message in the original
You don't mind UTF-8, you can choose it as the out-
going encoding and thus get rid of this message.
Otherwise, pay more attention to what you are in-
serting in the compose window.
