Correction. I did not read the tables carefully enough.

March 2018: 238 servers with SMTPUTF8
September 2016: 83 servers with SMTPUTF8

So the overall trend is upwards but there was a peak in May 2017 when there were 255 servers with SMTPUTF8

True, but in the old .su domain things are more encouraging, and the .ru domain (which is still the bulk of runet) shows a far steadier increase, with numbers measured in 1000s.

Is the drop-off associated with the first sets of renewal fees coming due? If so, the early growth might have been anomalously fast, and corrected. Another year or two will add clarity I  suppose.


.ru stats do indeed look good.

Looking at Mail Provider stats for .ru statdom.ru/tld/ru/report/mxzonecount/#53<http://statdom.ru/tld/ru/report/mxzonecount/#53> it appears that, apart from mail.h-email.net<http://mail.h-email.net>, all SMTPUTF8 support is provided by Google

My attention was grabbed by slide 12 of a presentation by Igor Lidin meeting.cctld.ru/docs/lidin.pdf<http://meeting.cctld.ru/docs/lidin.pdf>

I followed the link on that slide and found some interesting stats for Runet. It is good to see the steady year on year growth of servers in the рф domain supporting SMTPUTF8 statdom.ru/tld/рф/report/mxsmtputf8/#52<http://statdom.ru/tld/%D1%80%D1%84/report/mxsmtputf8/#52> If, like me, you cannot read Russian you can select English, top right.
