[Nmh-workers] question about encoded recipient names

is mh transparent to encoded receipient names?  i.e., if i receive a
mail message containing a recipient name such as:

   =?iso-8859-1?Q?Rickard_Ekl=F6f?= <address@hidden>
   =?big5?B?TWFycyBDaGFuZyixabnFpOUp?= <address@hidden>

can i assume that string hasn't been munged in any way by mh, and that
if i simply reply, then recipients of the new message will see that
name correctly rendered?  (assuming they're not running mh ;-)
i.e., i'm hoping this is strictly a presentation issue in mh, and not
something deeper.

i've been assuming this for years, and all of a sudden realized that
it is, in fact, just an assumption.

also, is there a simple way to manually render these encodings, in
order to see what they really look like?
