Ability to automatically encode subjects to UTF-8 for emails generated by DA

Version 1.43


New option in DA which automatically swaps a subject with a utf8 encoded subject for all emails generated by DA (welcome emails, notices, etc..) Default internal setting: utf8_encode_subject=0 to enable the setting, add the following to your directadmin.conf, and restart DA: utf8_encode_subject=1 and all emails will have the subject header value swapped out with the valid base64 utf8 encoding. New script which uses php to do the encoding (our internal base64 encode doesn't support more than 7 bit chars) /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/base64_encode.php The encoding of the subject will fix the following SpamAssassin header tags: SUBJECT_NEEDS_ENCODING SUBJ_ILLEGAL_CHARS which should lower the spam score by about 1.6, if special characters exist in the subject line. **IMPORTANT** Make sure you've set your skin to use UTF-8, else the special characters will not show up correctly. http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=364
