Creating users via email fails if user real name containes special chars
If importing issues using the following command
/usr/bin/rake -f /opt/redmine/Rakefile redmine:email:receive_pop3 RAILS_ENV="production" host=xxxxxx username=xxxxxx password=xxxxxx project=xxxxxx allow_override=project,tracker,category,priority unknown_user=create no_permission_check=1 tracker=support
In some cases mails will be left on the server with the message:
--> Message <xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxx.com> NOT processed and left on the server
When sending a mail with a MailAutherName containing danish special chars "æøå" the mail will be ignored.
It's not a problem creating the user in the system using æøå only the auto creation that fails.
Ruby version: 1.8.7 (i486-linux)
Rails version: 2.3.5
Redmine version: 1.1.2.stable.5164 (MySQL)
Mysql version: 5.1.41-3ubuntu12.9

This is an issue for me as well. Living Sweden we have the letters ÅÄÖ åäö in the alphabet.
Now when using unknown_user=create the mails from the imap server is marked as read but is not delivered to Redmine. If I set the rake to use unknown_user=accept the mails will go through but then of course the user will be set to anonymous and won´t get an account and therefor not any follow ups on the issues.

Anyone know of a workaround for this?, this is quite game breaking for us unfortunately.
I just made a Python class that connects to the IMAP server and then creates a user for each ignored email (those marked as "Seen"). I currently use it in my cron.
