I used MULE and xemacs (with Gnus) for years to read my email, but I was 
never able to find a solution for UTF-8 headers.  If you do end up 
finding one, please let the list know ;)

The real problem is that MULE has a very hard-coded base on ISO-2022, 
and just grafting on UTF-8 is very, very hard.

There is a MULE-UCS package for Unicode support, but the last time I 
tried to use it it barfed hard.  If you can get it installed, it seems 
all you need is:

(if (locate-library "un-define") (require 'un-define))
in your ~/.xemacs/init.el.
