• Send Mail script step distorts txt-file attachments with “foreign (Swedish) characters”.

• Replicate by attaching the attached file to a mail sent using a Microsoft outlook 360 account to send.

• Workaround is to use a plugin.


For a detailed description, I attached three pictures.

Picture one shows what the file looks like when opened in Text Wrangler using windows character set. (The way it is supposed to look.) With the “Swedish characters” marked with red circles.

Picture two shows the same file opened with the MAC character set.
