I can't find any relevant configuration setting in T-Bird, and I don't
see the problem in T-Bird with a utf-8 charset base64 encoded
message I received through a test list. The message contained the following
This should be a unicode encoded message.

Throw in a few “funny” chars

To get encoding
The lines of dashes are separate lines and in between are a line of
text, an empty line, a second line of text, a second empty line and a
third line of text. I'm sending this in utf-8 charset (I hope), and it
should come from the list encoded base64, and I expect it will display
as described in my T-Bird What do you see?
