Thunderbird bug

It has happened me to save received mail with thunderbird, the email client branded Mozilla, but when I'm saving I don't have a default name and I have to insert manually a new one.

Usually the mail subject is proposed as name of the file but this doesn't happen when in the subject there are not conventional characters.
When this happen I cancel the saving, go back to the mail where i copy the subject and save again pasting the name but all this is very unconfortable!!

For example, if I open one of this mail with a double click in the subject appears a strange space between two words; if i look at the mail from the list instead of the space there is a strange little ball...

I use Vista and Thunderbird 2.0.0.19.

Which do you think is the cause of this problem? A bug?

Others ideas to resolve that save the mail always with the name of the subject even if there are strange characters?

Thank you

not a bug

this has to do with that kind of character encoding you use for what. There are lot of settings for it on your side and on the side of the sender.
under tools/options/display fonts you will find lot of settings for such things.

As rule, you can also note , that the use of any 8bit chars outside of the mail body is still bad idea. Many mailsoftware support it all automatically, but number of mailsoftware on the servers will still be not happy abt it, thought they are getting less and less.

It could be just that your using Vista. I'm on XP and it's fine.
