That didn't work. However, when I set charset="utf-8" in my .muttrc,
and told Putty to use utf-8 encoding (change settings -> Window ->
Translation; Received data assumed to be in which character set: UTF-8)
it did work.
Is there a quick primer on charsets and encoding on the internet I can
refer to so that I can learn about all this?
Thanks for your pointer getting me going in the right direction.
