Dmitry Vasiliev <dima at hlabs.spb.ru> added the comment:
If I understand it correctly there is no "character set used by server"
because every article can be in different encoding. RFC-3977 say:
The character set of article bodies SHOULD be indicated in the
article headers, and this SHOULD be done in accordance with MIME.
But it's not always true, for example fido7.* groups known to use
"KOI-8R" encoding but I didn't find any relevant headers.
