mail::setAppCharset(const char *myCharset);
This function should be used to specify the application's character set. LibMAIL automatically translates names of folders between the application's character set, and the mail server's character set.
LibMAIL supports a limited number of character sets. The full LibMAIL configuration supports the ISO-8859 character set family, most windows character sets, and KOI8-R. Some East Asian character sets (Japanese, traditional and simplified Chinese) are experimental, and have not been fully tested.
This function returns true if the character set was succesfully installed; false if the character set is not supported.
