:) Hi, how do I configure pine so it'd save foreign language mails (not

:) =64=78=98 etc.
That's an encoding of characters that do not conform to 7bit ascii and it
has nothing to do with Pine, Pine is just saving what it got. You need a
tool that will transform "Quoted Printable" encoding to ascii, maybe Pine
could do such conversion, but I don't think it's a priority for the Pien
team, in any case.
Does someone know if there is any shell/perls script that will do this
