Nevermind this bug cannot be reproduced on debian testing.. It only happens on debian stable which has mhonarc_2.6.16.

Using the 2.6.18 version from debian testing on debian stable fixed everything.. Sorry for the bogus report.. Hope it helps somebody..

mhonarc seems to have problems with utf8/unicode emails having arabic/latin characters.

Which gives:

No problem if the latin mails are sent with ISO or the arabic mails are sent with windows-1256.

Note, depending the version of Perl being used for the archives,
and how they have configured mhonarc, the following bug item
may be relevant:


If relevant, if they upgrade to the latest version of mhonarc,
things may convert correctly.

Again, without the original raw mail data and configuration
the archive maintainers are using, I cannot provide any help.

You will need to contact the archive maintainers to see
if they are willing to share the raw mail data and their
configuration.  If they are concerned about privacy,
such information can be sent to me via private mail.

This is multi-encoding archive. How can I ask archive administrators to fix my problem?

Without the original raw email message and the mhonarc resources
that are set for the archive, I can provide help on this

My guess is that the email(s) in question are either not
properly tagging data with the proper encoding or mhonarc
resource configuration is not configured correctly to
support the encoding(s) in question.
