I scanned pop3 session for the mail with question marks in headers. I attached the results
in the file 'wireshark_UTF-8.txt'. Character encoding of this file is UTF-8.

> RFC 2822 and RFC 2047 require that all characters in headers with codes above 127 must
be encoded. But more then 10 percent of real e-mails have 8-bit-characters in headers (not
only spam! very popular forum engines send 8-bit headers in mails). 
> If JAMES has received such mails with 8-bit characters in headers and they are on server,
I can not get ALL mails (RFC compliant and not compliant) through POP3: error 0x800CCC19 in
Outlook Express (timeout) or error 0x8004210A in MS Outlook ('The operation timed out waiting
for a response from the receiving (POP) server...') 
> Through IMAP I get all mails. Messages that are not compliant to RFC have question marks
in their headers in IMAP folders.
