I don't know English well, sorry. I'll try tell about strange translation "," to "¬" detaily:

  1. FreeBSD-2.2.6;
  2. I installed Apache-RUS www server;
  3. Lynx 2.7;
  4. Hypermail-20b3.

I configured Lynx for using ISO-8859-1 character set (not for Russian ISO-8859-1). You wrote about koi8-r? - I use it only on my pine :-)

Ok, but when I tried to send message using Hypermail, I have translation some characters ("," <enter>, "\" etc) to characters with ascii codes 128-255. I don't use Russian code table for this, of cource. For example, I wrote: "Hello, Oleg Semenyuk" and send message to me, but got the next bulk: "Hello¬ Oleg Semenyuk" :(

            ^ translate from ","

I suppose that problem in Russian Apache, but it's very strange. Right now I'll try re-install HTTP server from Russian to World :) version from and will try once more.

Any suggestions?

More thanks to All,
