[Bug 1565002] Re: RFC 2047 encoded display name in From: header not decoded in digests.

It turns out this issue is a broken MUA composing the message. The
encoded word in the header was quoted. The actual From: was like

From: "=?utf-8?b?Sm9obiBEb2U=?=" <jdoe at example.com>

The quotes caused the encoded word to be taken literally which is the
proper behavior. This could be defended against by checking if the name
looks like an RFC 2047 encoded word and trying to decode it, but I don't
think it's worth it so I'm marking this invalid.
