Yes. See the decode function in the mh-format manual page. It has a few
limitations however. It doesn't use iconv or similar to convert headers
to the current encoding. So you need to use a UTF-8 locale and set the
MM_CHARSET environment variable to UTF-8. That means that it then won't
decode a ISO-8859-1 header anymore.

The thing I find with spam is that they always seem to break the rfc by
including space characters in the encoded section of the header. I don't
know whether this is also common in legitimate mails but nmh doesn't
decode such headers. The relevant code is in sbr/fmt_rfc2047.c if you're
interested in looking.
