Wrong encoding in yahoo conversations

Reported by: neok Owned by: marv
Milestone: 2.5.0 Component: Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN
Version: 2.4.2 Keywords: enconding yahoo msn



I have a problem with my contacts' messages and status message encoding using a Yahoo account. They don't show correctly characters like á, é, í, ó, ú, ...

Actually, I have MSN contacts with this Yahoo account, so I don't know if this bug affects Yahoo contacts too.


PS: Sorry for my English.

In what way do these characters appear incorrectly?

What does the debug log say when receiving one of these messages?

(In 5e69fb5f354ed74d6deb6f4d1f6aff46afd8a072):
Yahoo seems to always send messages encoded in utf-8 now. Hopefully this doesn't cause problems with other older clients. Fixes #5973.
