→ Tom: with Mail, Preferences > Rules > Add Rule, create a new header to survey with Edit Header List… and enter Content-Type. Then define your rule as Content-Type Contains windows-1252. To easily count them, choose an action of Move Message in a temporary mailbox.

As a typical example, on a set of > 20 000 E-mail, just 4 % have an header with charset=windows-1252, and among these 74 % are total SPAM or malware, and 26 % are coming from Mail on ≠ versions of MacOS X.

comment Purge command - Unable to purge disk buffers, error #-2?
