Default Character Set

This is the character set that will be used as the default for web mail users.  Users can change this option once they log in under the Settings option page. By default the character set is US-ASCII which does not cater for extended characters. If emails that have been sent from web mail and are missing extended characters or they are displayed incorrectly, it could mean that the user has not set their character set.

Default time zone

This is the time zone that will be used as the default for web mail users.  Since the web server is accessible by users throughout the world, the server needs to adjust the displayed date of the messages in a user’s folder to properly reflect the time relative to their location. For example, if a user in Australia was using web mail on a server in the United States, they would want to see their inbox list displayed with the received date of the messages in their local time instead of a US time.

To do this, the web mail browser sends to the server the time zone offset configured on the client computer. If the client computer does not have the correct time zone configured, they will not see the messages with the correct times.
