Dear hypermail experts,

We have just started to look at way to deal with incoming emails with headers and bodies in various different encodings.

Currently, it looks like the best way to solve this is to add an option to convert all the headers and bodies (but probably not attachments) to UTF-8. The actual conversion would be based on the iconv library, which is available on a wide range of systems.

I'm writing this mail to find out if anybody else is interested in this work, or if anybody already has done something in this direction. Any other advice is of course also appreciated.
