    After upgrading to 1.1.6 my nice mail ready to be sent had all accented characters changed, form è to è , from à to à , from l'espansione to l’espansione...and so on. This happen also if I duplicate an old newsletter, that before was looking good. What I miss, or what i did wrong?

    Try adding $charset = 'latin1' to config.php? 1.1.6 now defaults the database to use utf8.

    Thanks, that worked. I realized that database Collation about server connection is default set to utf8, but each table has its own character set to latin1_swedish_ci.

    It doesn't matter. Version 1.1.6 sets the database character set to use 'utf8' by default. If your characters aren't displayed properly, setting $charset in the config.php file to an encoding method that supports your language will fix it.
