You may also like to take a look at Agent 1.7 (from,
which has fully compliant charset handling for both news and mail.
The only niggle is that internally it is still codepage-based, so
while it handles Unicode you can't display multiple scripts in a
single message.

It also allows user access to the charset definitions, making it very
easy to add new charsets or control the options for existing ones.
I've recently added iso-8859-16 to mine, for instance.
