I have made Czech translations of "templates" directory. But I 
have some problems, which I will consult with You. 

First of them is, that Czech uses ISO-8859-2 character set. It is 
not problem with www, becouse my server automaticaly recodes 
documets in clients character set. But in mail message I need 
append header
Mime-version: 1.0
Content-Type: text-plain; charset=iso-8859-2
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8Bit

Currently used method of message generation doesn't allow 
header modification. There are two posibilities, include some 
headers to append, configurable in Defaults.py, or make templates 
including headers and change other function. In Bounce.py is 
hardcoded header with US-ASCII character set, it is unusable.

I can made both and submit patch, but I will know, what You will 

Second problem. I think it will be nice, to switch language versions 
in responses by detecting top level domain in user adress, how 
will You find this?

I am interested in any sugestions.


P.S.: For Ken, You are interested in my Delivery status notification 
patch. I have made new version which works with "The Dragon 
De Monsyne" <dragondm@delta.integral.org> stadard smtplib 
patch. I am currently testing ob it works fine. I will submit the patch 
in end of this week.
