When I'm opening preferences dialog, this encoding list appears:
enc
Unfortunately, there are no cp1251 here.
This encoding IS available in my Mono setup - after compiling the test code for Encoding.GetEncodings() from here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.text.encoding.getencodings.aspx it are among others. Both smuxi and test code have 4.0.0.0 mscorlib in their AssemblyRef.
Many Russian irc-servers are using cp1251 and have no utf-8 support, so this encoding is essential for that networks.

I will add CP1251 to the encoding list then. I wasn't aware any CP encoding is actually still in use...

AFAIR, mono call it "WINDOWS-1251":

1251   windows-1251              True     True     True     True     True     True

BTW, in Russian internets, most people use UTF-8 and, only some minor faction - cp1251 and koi8-r.
