In filter_trans.c, the qp_deocde() function replaces all ‘_’ characters with <SPACE).>

RFC 2047 states that the ‘_’ should be replaced with <SPACE> in “Q” encodings, where a wide range of printable characters are used in non-critical locations within the message header (e.g., Subject).

RFC 2045, which defines the “Quoted-Printable” content transfer encoding, says no such specific thing about the ‘_’ being replaced with <SPACE>.

I agree with your interpretation of the RFCs. qp_encode() should not intepret '_' specially for a Content-Transfer-Encoding of quoted-printable.
