UTF-8 Characters as the Email sender name(adress)

Hello, I have detect some Problems in my email sender name.

I made today my routine tests and I created a new User on my Shop. But I was shocked because I got an Email from: 

=?utf-8?Q?some=20Characters=20here=20-WithmyStoreName@xyz.xyz.de
There is not problem with the Mail Content, only the Sender Name.

Can anybody help ? I dont think that I had this problem before, but I dont change the shop or dont added modules since a pair of years.

I edited already in app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model the Email.php the line 103 from
$mail = new Zend_Mail();
 to 
$mail = new Zend_Mail('UTF-8');
but it doesnt work and still the same.

Hi @mage_man,

 

Can you check the contact data stored into the database (table core_config_data) to be sure the values are correct?

EDIT:
I found the problem now. The E-Mail Sender Name was too long. I edited it and now it's correct. Thanks anyway for your Help.

Hi,

I checked now the said table, but it seems to be ok. The Values are the same as in the System/Configuration on Admin Panel. So right I think.
