IBM Connections Mail and international characters

Issue: In Connections Mail, international characters like Umlaute are either not displayed or only a square is printed instead of the character.

Solution: The underlying operating system where WebSphere Application Server is running, is not using UTF-8 for character encoding. You need to define UTF-8 as character encoding in the Java runtime environment. For Connections Mail, it is sufficient to modify the application server configuration where the Common application is running (e.g. InfraCluster_server1).

  1. In the WebSphere Application Server Administration Console, click Servers > Application servers > Java and Process Management > Process Definition > Java Virtual Machine > Generic JVM Arguments
  2. Set the following two parameters as follows:
    -Dclient.encoding.override=UTF-8
    -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8
