    Default Problem with different charsets when reading attachments' names during pop3 session.

    Hello,

    When I'm analysing content of a mailbox, I send TOP commands to gather some information. For example, on the mailbox, I've got a mail with one attachment called:
    "Lily Allen - It's Not Me, It's You [2009].rar"
    But when I'm receiving the content of this mail using Qt and POP3 protocol, the filename is:
    "=?iso-8859-2?Q?Lily_Allen_-_It=27s_Not_Me=2C_It=27s_You_[2009].rar?="
    Another example - the original name of an attachment:
    3D_Mario_Forefer.rar
    An in Qt it is:
    "=?UTF-8?Q?3D=5FMario=5FForefer.rar?="

    How to deal with these different charsets? Is there a way to obtain the original filenames from these weird ones?

    Thank you in advance for your effort,
    Michael.

    Sure, parse the filename in the char set specified. For example, =27 is the hex code for ascii 39 '
    =2C is the hex code for ascii 44 ,
    etc.

    All that is happening is 7-bit encoding.

    Is there any convenient function in Qt ready to do just that? I was looking at .fromUtf8, .fromAscii and so on, but I don't really get how they work.
