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 gmail.com account. It all works nicely; however, there's one big
annoyance: ISO-8859-1 text. Some strings in the email header contain
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?
