Pressing 'e' to open vim on the email allows me to avoid iconf, I guess,
and the character encoding supported by the system, big5
in my case, is displayed with a Chinese character font.
In mutt, only the header is readable, I guess because the header was
supposed to be left free of MIME-requiring encodings.
So, yes, vim does.
