I recieved a couple of emails from a sender, with the letter å in the name - Bålsta becomes Blsta. The letter å is missing in both the list view and in the opened message. Further, the letter ö is missing from one of the words in subject, överbjuden becomes verbjuden.

For comparsion the same emails shown in my Android phone displays the characters as supposed.

But, for further confusion, I have some other senders with å in their name, and then it is shown as it should in my Jolla.

Running Sailfish, and same behaviour on

@nick75 - Would be possible to check how the name is written in the email headers ? using the web client you should be able to check original text, for e.g in gmail is the option: "show original".

@VDVsx gmail show original displays this:

From: "Bålsta Auktionshall" noreply@balstaauktionshall.nuTo: user@mydomain.com Subject: Du har blivit överbjuden

Copy and pasted.

@User, I currently only have one other sender with the letter å in the name, And that is showed correctly.
