The encoding of headers is changed when replying to email..

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Email is sent originally with something like: Konstanty
=?iso-8859-2?Q?Bia=B3kowski?= <emailaddress> [From Evolution Email]
2. When you reply this is changed to: =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Konstanty_?=
=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Bia=B3kowski?= <emailaddress> [In Mail/mozilla/thunderbird]

Actual Results:  
The 'ł' changes to a '³' - as the character is interpreted in ISO-8859-1 instead
of ISO-8859-2 

Expected Results:  
Encoding should stay the same as the original...
