Mailutils will not attempt to decode RFC 2047 headers if the charset
used by the console is unknown. The charset is determined using the
following rules:

1) If either $sysconfdir/mail.rc or ~/.mailrc contain
   `set charset=CHARSET', then this value is used, unless CHARSET is
   the string "auto", in which case the step 2 is used.

2) If the charset is not explicitely specified, mailutils attempts to
   deduce it from the values of environment variable LC_ALL or, if it
   is not set, LANG. For exact rules which are used, see the file
