We could probably follow the behaviour used for the 'reason' string in vacation and allow a ':mime' parameter for ':from' to indicate a MIME encoded header, as opposed to the normal sieve utf8 text. Without :mime, SIEVE has to figure out a suitable charset itself (simple solution is use utf8 if there are any non-ascii chars). With :mime SIEVE will not do any type of encoding and instead assumes the supplied data is already valid.


vacation :from "José <jose(_at_)example(_dot_)com>" "I'm away";

vacation :from :mime "=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Jos=E9?= <jose(_at_)example(_dot_)com>" "I'm away";
