Sorry, this was not completely correct.
At least with Thunderbird you can choose to show messages with a
selected charset (e.g. UTF-8), if no mime-header declaring something
different is found. (I stumbled over that, now that I've just came home,
because in my Thunderbird I didn't see any garbage at all, not even in
the original message from Mr. Siddiqi).
You can also force a charset, if a message has a false charset-header
(but this will most likey distort the view to any other messages, so it
is only useful as temporary setting - somewhat boring because it is
"hidden" in the extras/options/font dialog).
