Re: [Evolution] Character encoding and expunge?

This patch is completely untested apart from it compiling with no warnings.  It wont be committed if someone can't get off their lazy bum and at least test it.  And fix it up to an acceptable level if it needs fixing.  You might have to read rfc2047 to make it work/test it too, since it needs to work properly with valid emails.

I wont be spending any more time on this until someone else does (and Jeff, don't touch it!), and if they don't, I guess nobody cares enough do they?
