importing email with utf envoded subjects
I have mbox files I want to import with the mailbox2dbmail tool. One mbox file equals 1 imap folder and can be over a gigabyte in size.
The mbox files contain Subjects with various encodings, some are ISO-8859, some specify the encondig (Subject: =?windows-1257?Q?...) and some a mixed (several subjects with different encodings). However many subjects are in UTF only, utf7 I assume.
These, when imported don't show correctly on Outlook 2007 imap clients, they are rendered in ISO. The problem shows with umlauts and other >127 chars.
Using dbmail 2.2.17. Would it be possible for dbmail-smtp to recognize these UTF subjects and convert them to something acceptable for dbmail on the fly?
The database is configured as UTF8 and the mbox files were generated from Outlook pst files using libpst.
