Postfix: User's real / full name with accented character
My real name has an accented character in it "í". Whenever I send an email through postfix on my Linode and receive it on my laptop, the sender comes through as
Assuming the above is true [which it seems to be as changes made in
There isn't a problem with unicode support in Postfix itself per se as, when I send an email with accented chars in the title or body they come through OK. It's just the sender full name that's getting messed up.

If this is happening, then the most likely issue is a character set mismatch. Look at the character set being used to encode the header (it's immediately after the =?, or ISO-8859-1 in my example) and compare it to the locale being used in your terminal where you set your user's full name. In the case of a mismatch, then Postfix is probably using a different locale than the one where you set the name.
