define('SMTP_LOGIN', '[email protected]');

Tiny Tiny rss can send mail, but the Chinese mail sent is garbled.Can you help me?



are you using smtp plugin or built-in mail function?


HI, I using smtp plugin.


looks like phpmailer defaults to iso-8859-1, yet another idiotic choice, as usual with this library

this should probably help


The problem is solved, thank you very much.
