I am Romanian and want MM to use utf-8 encoding because iso-8859-2
(current MM charset for Romanian) is not commonly used due its wrong
display of ş and ţ letters.

I would really appreciate if you would tell us what changes you have made
to your MM instance so German can have utf-8 encoding.

I have tried changing only the line in mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py
add langauge ("Romanian", ....... charset="utf-8")
but that's not enough.

After I make this change I end up with stuck emails 
(MM doesn't deliver them any more). 

Thank you in advance and hope to hear from you soon

P.S. My MM version is 2.1.9
