I'm having some trouble decoding an email header using the standard
imaplib.IMAP4 class and email.message_from_string method.
In particular, email.message_from_string() does not seem to properly
decode unicode characters in the subject.
How do I decode unicode characters in the subject?
I read on the documentation that the email module supports RFC 2047.
But is there a way to make imaplib.IMAP4 and email.message_from_string
use this protocol? I'm using Python 2.5.2 on Fedora. Perhaps this
problem has been fixed already in Python 2.6.
