i use newmailnotify under debian. subject with chinese character doesnot show properly. It seems yamb passes mime2DecodedSubject to the notifier. How can I decode this string properly. I tried several decoding ways in python, but no success. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I don't know which encoding Thunderbird uses in mime2DecodedSubject, and could not find any information about it. So I'm afraid I really can't help you here.

after poking a little in mozilla source, it seems it is encoded in utf-16. Directly passing this as arguments may lose the higher 8 bits, so that it's unable to decode chinese character in the notifier. Can we re-encoded to utf-8 as args? If that's OK, any suggestion for how to implement this is appreciated, as I'm new to the xpcom programming.

OK, thank's for these info, and your help for testing the evolution.
the forthcoming 0.6.6 version will add a new setting to allow converting the parameters to UTF-8.
(Except for the body, which is really tricky, with it's Charset and Content-Transfer-Encodingfrown.
