 use the charset given in the parameter encoding?
 Rhetoric question:
 remind me again why it's *our* job to fix brokenness in other mailers?
 especially when they are proprietary? argh... this is why writing a
 mail client is a PITA while at the same time being a thankless job.

+Sorry, didn't understand that. What is 'charset given in parameter encoding'? Its name will be extracted from "=?koi8-r?" prefix in the headers I gave?
+I would strongly suggest to provide the user ability to select charset of such attachment as a dropdown list (but try to guess initial value intelegently). This is MUCH better than any other hacks!
+As for why it's your business to fix brokenness in other mailers:
+It's life. If you want to be best, you have to be best and most intelligent. Don't stop having done 95% of work since
+the fact that these 5% of work remain unimplemented makes Evo unusable for a lot of people - in quantities say 20 times larger than population of US. So either forget about world domination (and don't waste resources on this project) or do things properly.
+PS: I just added #8482 - please take a look at it too.
