php - Laravel mail with accent in subject


I have a service sending mails.

My problem is the subject in the title contains accents, but they're not showing up in the mails.

When for example I put in:

->subject ( 'Olvidó de Contrase$ntildea' );

In the mail the subject appears like this 'Olvid de Contrase'

It doesn't show the ó and ñ letters.

Any help is much appreciated.




Ok I find a solution, and is this

->subject(utf8_encode( 'Olvidó de Contraseña' ));

Works Perfect! Thanks for help!




Subject is an email header. And headers may only contain ASCII characters.

So you have to encode your headers with base64 (B) and quote-printable (Q).

$to = '[email protected]';
$subject = 'Subject with non ASCII ó¿¡á';
$message = 'Message with non ASCII ó¿¡á';
$headers = 'From: [email protected]'."\r\n"
.'Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8'."\r\n";
mail($to, '=?utf-8?B?'.base64_encode($subject).'?=', $message, $headers);
