mutt, ISO-8859-1, and

I'm running on OS-X 10.4.11 and Terminal version 1.5.1 (133-1).  Just
recently I installed MacPorts, including mutt-devel so that I can access
my account.  It all works nicely; however, there's one big
annoyance: ISO-8859-1 text.  Some strings in the email header contain
such characters:

  From: "=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Bla Bl=ECn?=" < bla at bla >

and that's exactly what I see in my email list in mutt.  No actual name
with language specific characters, but instead this blob of undecoded

I've tried to fix this but nothing seems to help.  I tried to change
LANG, the locale, whatnot, nothing works.

Does anybody have an idea what's going on here, and how I can fix that?
Thanks heaps!
