           Summary: 8bit-capability should be specifiable per-server
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.6
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: mi+kde aldan algebra com

Version:           1.9.6 (using KDE 3.5.6, compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305
OS:                FreeBSD (amd64) release 6.2-STABLE

It is currently impossible to have the 8bit-capability configured differently for different SMTP-servers in KMail.

I have 5 such servers configured in "Outgoing Mail", only one of them rejecting 8bit-encoded messages. I would like to use "quoted-printable" _with that server_, and 8bit with all others... The parameters should really be a per-server one.

Same is, probably, true about the other ones: "send now" vs. "send later", and the "domain" -- one may wish to pretend to be a different thing to different SMTP-servers.

Oh, and, of course, KMail should be able to _automatically_ fall-back to quoted-printable (and further down to base64), if an SMTP server rejects 8bit. Perhaps, "auto" or "prefer 8bit" should be another option for the Content-Transfer-Encoding handler.
