Starting with 4D Internet Commands for 4D v11 SQL, the developer can now send and receive e-mails of various languages with relative ease; this is because 4D v11 SQL works in Unicode and has the ability of converting to and from various character sets irrespective of the system language. This Tech Note describes the basic concepts related to the e-mail protocol while pointing out some limitations that one may possibly face when attempting to send and receive e-mails in Unicode with 4D Internet Commands. A sample component is provided as a sample solution.

I experienced problems with quoted-printable encoded mails. The code provided will cut spaces in the subject and truncate the body text.
