*Please, no!* Conversion from any charset to utf-8 is possible, but
conversion back, according to user preferences, is not. People
start to use funny characters like non-breakable space and so on.

Problem seems to be impossible to solve not beacuse of technical
difficuly but because of very different user preferences. Much
more flexible mechanism in needed.

Any charset conversion implies problem what would be sending
charset and how to change it.

*Yes, please!* Now, I'm filtering messages via slocal:

default  -  pipe  ?  "/usr/bin/mimedecode|/usr/lib/mh/rcvpack
/var/mail/max -mbox"

what is not the best practice, but it works.
