Let me expand on this a bit, because I didn't explain it well.
Obviously if your locale is ISO-8859-1, you probably won't have an email
address that contains UTF-8.  But ... what if you get an email with
a 'From' address that contains UTF-8, , and you want to reply to it?
Right now convert stuff to the local character set when constructing the
