While we are on a sideline, I'd hope you could have a close look at the 
above line. I'm not sure what kind of mail user agent you're using, but 
it doesn't look like a very recent one. It either doesn't understand 
UTF-8, or doesn't know that when copying =????=-encoded header values 
into the body, they need to be encoded differently.

For a contrast, here is how the corresponding line in Willy's mail looks 
(to increase the probability that you can read the actual characters, 
I'm sending this mail in iso-8859-1 especially for you):

Just to make sure you don't misunderstand me, this is not about me and 
my name, but about about basic understanding for people who can't get by 
with just ASCII.
