and YOU decide that everybody has to set the charset you wish
in his mail-client as default because YOU are blocking messages?

most charsets are containing the whole ASCII set for english
and if somebody lives in a foreign country, writing a mail
in english and maybe have a NAME with special chars what should
the do - go out and get a new name because ASCII does not support
his one and you are rejecting his mails?

with this attitude you should consider NOT to maintain mailservers

if it would not be broken you would not have been written the
first mail in this topic
