Emailed tasks do not schedule as repeating

manucharov says:
I emailed myself a task (a birthday reminder, actually) but could not make it schedule as repeating yearly.

I tried the following syntax in email body:

due: 6.2.2006
repeat: yearly

and

due: 7.2.2006
repeat: yearly

...neither works. The tasks arrive ok, but scheduled as "repeating: never".

What could be the reason?

OK, I'm going to send it now. I will not include any comments; you can tell my message by the From: address.

Also please note that the subject and the note text is in Russian (can THAT be the reason, I wonder?).

Hello? Any news?

Sorry for being persistent, but emailing myself birthday reminders was basically my main reason to join :)

Okay, this should now be fixed. Can you please try sending your email again?

It was a fun issue specific to international characters sent via Gmail :)

Thanks, it worked!

>> international characters sent via Gmail

Oh yes, Gmail is known for weird behaviour with international characters. You should see what arrives into my friends' Russian-hosted mailboxes sometimes :)
