    Contact form for interested buyers problem

    Hello

    I tried to send an inquiry form on my website to an advertizer (myself for testing purposes) and I noticed that the form doesn't like special characters.

    For example my real name is DaniŽl and is spelled with an Umlaut (trema in Dutch).
    The form is correctly sent, but if the receiver hits reply it converts the emailaddress to something like this:

    Reply to: DaniŽl <knientje@myemail.nUTF-8?Q?Dani=C3=ABl_ Add contact, ?=@myemai;.nl <?=@myemail.nl>

    If I don't use the Ž but the e there is no problem at all.

    But in French, Dutch and German there are a lot of names with special characters. I know I shouldn't use them, but do my visitors know It will cause the problem that the seller can't reply to the interested person, because the email address is messed up.
