Hello Silverstripe community

I've created a very simple form (all according to documentation) and it works perfectly, I can send the Messeges, etc. but when I look in my email client (or at ), I see no special characters in it, just only strange characters like à ¶ à ¤ à ¶ à ¤

The whole page is encoded using UTF-8, the template of the email too. and it still doesn't work

Can someone help me of you?

How it actually looks at you, do you have such problems with your contact pages?

Thanks for any help

Are you using HTML entities?

Hi Ryan,

no, i'm not.

But this dosen't help me.

I try to change the Text with help of htmlentities() and I got this
öäöäöäöä :)

Like you see it is not that what I want
