UTF8 for Russians

I have installed Jira, created a project, created an email account on our mail server, then linked the project to that email account. When I send an email to that address (mail@034.pfr.ru) a new issue is created.

But we using Russian

and the issue creates like: "Ñòàòóñ ñîîáùåíèÿ: Êðèòè÷åñêîå.
Íà ñåðâåðå: Primary:SW03400008002:NT íåäîñòàòî÷íî ìåñòà íà äèñêå: E:"

The message in mail@034.pfr.ru using UTF8

Is there any params in service that can help?

Hi Pavel,

To change JIRA to UTF8 you just need to add the following parameters in your JIRA system properties:

-Dfile.encoding=utf-8 -Dsun.jnu.encoding=utf-8

JIRA restart is needed after this modification.

Also, depending on which database server you're using, you'll need to set the collation to UTF8 as well.
