You can make it always generate utf-8 by editing Antiword.pm and
changing the text around line 200 to say this:
$parententity->attach( Type => "text/plain",
Charset => "utf-8",
Encoding => "8bit",
Disposition => "attachment",
Filename => $attachfile,
Path => "$dir/$unpackfile");
(note the "Charset" setting). Then just edit the setting in
MailScanner.conf to say
Antiword = /usr/bin/antiword -f -m UTF-8.txt
and that's all you need to do. If you find this works okay, that's what
will go in the next release.
