Yes, I know. I see it in my installation of GnuPG 2.0.16 where no probs with german umlauts are existing (as you see in jpg-link I sent in op.

I have 2 gpg.confs, one 4 v1.4.11 and another 4 v2.0.16. In second no charset is defined in it. Standard-utf-8 works fine in my client 40tude-dialog, but not in Thunderbird where umlauts are shown as questionmarks. Now I will test ist out setting charset iso-8859-1 in gpg.conf for version2.
