Unless I'm much mistaken, 8859-15 is actually mostly used in British English 
mail.  The € is present, but so is the £, so that's no problem.  I'm guessing 
that it is a new setup and they haven't realised that they have a different 
charset.  I've emailed them and gently pointed it out :-)

Meanwhile, if you are saying that kmail displayed it as 8859-15, I guess I 
should file a bug.
