Brussels / 3 & 4 February 2024


[Protocols] Unicode in email: RCPT TO:

This talk covers what unicode in email is (basically: UTF8 everywhere and fewer weird encodings), what RFCs are involved, why the design is as it is, why the obvious alternative failed, and of course how to test compliance, from unit tests to interop testing.

If I'm feeling grumpy that day, I may also talk about why Microsoft does this better than the open source community.
