I'm running GNU emacs 20.7.2 on two machines (one at work; one at
home), both of which run Debian GNU Linux 2.2 (the current stable
release). The installation on the two machines was close to
identical. My emacs customizations on the two machines are
But they differ in their behaviour in one annoying way. On the
home-machine, within RMAIL, mail-messages which include non-ASCII
character-encoding are displayed as one would wish. But on the work
machine they are displayed literally (i.e. as sequences of digits in
the range 0200 through 0377).
When I move the same RMAIL file from machine to machine, the accented
characters are displayed `correctly' on the home machine, but
literally on the work machine.
There must be a difference in configuration somewhere between the two
systems, to produce this different behaviour, but I'm at my wits' end
trying to figure out where it might be. The directory
has exactly the same content on the two machines.
Is there anyone who could give me a pointer to where I might go to
track down the source of this weirdness. What else might influence the
behaviour of emacs when it visits the RMAIL file and displays it?
I've been through the info documentation but not found anything
By the way, the difference in behaviour is seen both in console mode
and under X.
Thanks for any help anyone might be able to provide,
