Please, no guessing. Just tell us exactly what you did and what errors you
got. Also, in this case, please describe names that might be mangled by
mailclients, just to be sure.

Yes. It requires a correctly setup shell (locale) though, which is documented.
Another obstacle is that Samba also needs to be setup correctly with respect
to the codepage. Both can be setup to work mostly but fail or silently
produce bogus data with anything that is not part of a small common subset.
