Send e-mail with charset iso-8859-1

I have a rails application that sends e-mails. The e-mails currently use the utf-8 charset, but I have to change this to iso-8859-1 since it doesn't play well with Outlook. (Norwegian characters such as ÆØÅ are not displayed correctly, because Outlook doesn't recognize the utf-8 charset)

1. I've set the default charset i the environment, but this does not work. (ActionMailer::Base.default_charset = "iso-8859-1") 2. I've tried to set the @charset variable, but this does not work either.     @subject = '..'     @recipients = '...'     ...     @charset = 'iso-8859-1'

It's seem that rails simply ignores every attempt to change the charset. What to do??

Kind regards, Eivind Løland-Andersen

and first for this above to work you have to have an initializer:

class String   def to_iso     Iconv.conv('ISO-8859-1', 'utf-8', self)   end end

class NilClass   def to_iso     Iconv.conv('ISO-8859-1', 'utf-8', '')   end end
