When using umlauts with the POP 4DIC commands, ISO parsing must be turned on to properly display umlaut characters. For example, a downloaded e-mail without the ISO parsing will display "ümläut tést" as "=?ISO-8859-1?Q?=FCml=E4ut_t=E9st?=".

To turn on the ISO parsing, use the following command before downloading the POP messages:

$error_i:=POP3_Charset (1;1)   ` Handles ISO-8859 encoded messages.
