MS Outlook has a nasty habit of mislabeling the charset of its

=v= Some older versions send out mail that does't specify a
charset, so many apps assume the text is ASCII (which is how the
standard works) though of course it's Windows-1252.

You should be able to alias us-ascii also:

cp1252; us-ascii
cp1252; iso-8859-1

=v= Those particular characters in Windows-1252 violate charset
standards anyway.

However, it appears that cp1252 is a proper subset of iso-8859-1
from a code-point persective.
