For example in a folder we have messages in Russian (KOI8-R and Win-1251), in
English and in Estonian (ISO-8859-1). Mozilla ignores the Content-type: charset=
and displays the subhect and from fields like it is set in the folder
preferences, so we have +/-50% unreadable subject and names in russian,
corrupted subjects in estonian.

Eugene, i am using 2003031008 build and i don't see this problem: all mime
encoded headers are displaying correctly. If it is still a problem for you,
could you please attach a problematic message? Thanks.

Downloaded my attach at home and I'm able to see the message competely (I use at
home The Bat! (www.ritlabs.com)), so I believe it's another problem...

if you can try to create the attachment one more time and attach the message in
the .eml format, then we can take another look.

Marina (very nice name, I like it...), I do not see any reason why I should
attach already attacheds file? I opened same file in The Bat! and now in Outlook
Express - all is shown perfectly (I'm at home on totally differnt machine, so I
do not have the file here). The attach is fully functional and it also works
fine when opened in Mozilla's browsing window....

Or I do not get the reason to attach it again...???

well... the reason is that we need to see your message in the mail thread not in
the browser window. To do so i have to save your attachment into my Local folder
and then view the message. When i am trying to save your attachment from the
link in the bug report into the Local folder and open it: there is no message in
the folder, it is empty. It seems that there was an error while attaching since
Xianglan can not see it either.

Maybe it is another bug? How'd you explaine it opens in other mail clients? I
believe there should be some uncompatible format of the file if it was not
correctly attached? 

Anyway I'll attach it tomorrow (it's 2:02 in the night at here).
