If you select a different but compatible character set for encoding an Internet message, the result will be a message whose body is encoded using the selected character set. However, the message body is still labeled with the default Internet character set for that type of message.


For example, a Western European message will typically use the ISO-8859-1 character set. If you select any other compatible character set for encoding this message, such as Windows-1252, the resulting Internet message is labeled with the ISO-8859-1 character set. The message is actually encoded with the Windows-1252 character set.

It is recommended that only typical Internet character sets be used to encode messages.
