What do you consider a nice solution? I use the method as described
by Oliver (actually that's the default of the debian package). It works
satisfactory but unfortunately we have a wild mixture of latin1 and latin9
in europe (thanks to MS windows not being able or willing to adapt to
the new situation in the past four years) so half of the mails I 
get isn't decoded at all. If anybody has a patch or an other solution,
I would be interested as well.
