Description of problem:
emails with german umlauts in it are not diplayed correctly in subject
and sometimes in the body of the mail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open an email with german umlauts in it

Actual Results:  I have some problems with characters like "����"
(german umlauts) in evolution.

One header source might look like this:

Date: Wed, 23 Jun 2004 18:36:09 +0200
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook IMO, Build 9.0.6604 (9.0.2911.0)
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2800.1409

Evolution displays it like this:


In some mails, even umlauts in message body are missing. Like ion this
one (missing character is marked with ><):

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1

[] Computer-Virus plagt schwedische Krankenkasse [Update]
Um der Lage Herr zu werden haben die Techniker der staatlichen
Krankenkasse viele Systeme abgeschaltet und analysieren zurzeit die
Angriffe.> <ber Herkunft und Art des Virus gibt es bislang keine Auskunft.

I think I had this error before the update to 1.5.9.x .

Expected Results:  all characters are displayes corectly.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

I think this was fixed earlier
