Hi Beitmann,

May I know if your Confluence instance is using UTF-8? Or were you referring to the umlautes in an Email instead of a Confluence page?

Björn Eitmann Dec 17, 2012

Yes. UTF-8. Is there a better encoding for that?

This might help:

Is there an other plugin to get emails into a confluence page. "Send Email to Page Plugin" is not able to work with "German Umlaute" like öäü.

Hi! Thanks for this report. Sorry I did not see it till just now.

I believe this is now fixed with the latest version 2.x+ of the Send EMail To Page AddOn for Confluence

Please have a look at my internationalization tests on this page

I have also drastically reduced the price on the plugin :)

thank you!

The tests I conducted were straight "out of the box" versions of Confluence using the local embedded database. If you see problems please follow the link Stefan provided with a built in Confluence test to see if it is your database.
