That's only going to be necessary if the mail contains characters that
aren't part of ASCII.  Mail tends to use the simplest character set
necessary for the actual message content.

About the only way I can think of forcing the issue would be having a
mount point name that needs to use UTF-8, and that mount point to be
listed in the disk space warning in the log watch report.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
