Okay, I agree about the headers, but how exactly does one get %decode() to 
work in a filter for the replied text??  I just tried...

 from:nocomponent,formatfield="From: %decode()":
 from:nocomponent,formatfield="From: %decode(%(putstr{text}))":

which result in...

 mhl: "From: %d": format compile error - component or function name expected
 mhl:         ^
