It works fine here for me and ever did as long as I use it (I live in Germany
and have lots umlauts in mails subjects often). Are you sure the mail and
especially its subject was encoded properly (just because evo displays it
properly doesn't have to mean it is)? There are iirc specially rules for
non-ascii characters in mail subjects...

But whatever: its unlikely that this bug is Fedora specific. Thus please file it
upstream at: https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/mailnotify/ Then it can be
fixed properly and for all distributions. Adding the header of the mail ins
question might be wise, then one can check if it's as it should be. 

I can forward the problem, but it's often better to not have a man in the middle...
