Only as MIME encoded words and only in header fields, cf. RFC 2368,


This should produce

  To: (=?UTF-8?B?QmrDtnJuIEjDtmhybWFubg==?=)
  Subject: =?UTF-8?B?QmrDtnJuIEjDtmhybWFubg==?=

or after MIME decoding

  To: (Björn Höhrmann)
  Subject: Björn Höhrmann

In fact, you can use any MIME compatible encoding.
