It makes sens now. Thank you for the clarification.

Problem two is some particular messages, from a French correspondent,
never display the letters with accents correctly (random character
replacement). His email client does not support Unicode encoding (it is
old). I receive his messages:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

When I have a chance, I will ask him for a message test, and past it
along this thread. Maybe one could tell looking at the source?

Again thank you for the explanation about non-ASCII characters in
message source files (.eml).
