The fix is broken.

The class has only "magic" (context sensitive) configuration.

The setting of plain_text_header and htlm_text_header should either be moved out of the constructor or the constructor must get an optional argument for the charset.

Don't get me wrong, getCharset() is ok by me, but I really miss the manual overide for the programmer.

Also alternate_charset can never be set except by extending the class.

getCharset() is called multiple times instead of just once. Why waste CPU cyles when you simply can store the rsult of this function?

I don't understand the changes to dmailer_prepare, but calling a constructor twice sounds like an ugly hack - and broken API.


PS: Please use one diff file per patched file.
