There are obviously e-mails with non-standard encodings
(who wants to join me hating pine?)

See attached backtrace.

A local patch of

-            return unicode(newvalue[2], newvalue[0] or
+            try:
+                return unicode(newvalue[2],
newvalue[0] or 'us-ascii')
+            except LookupError:
+                return unicode(newvalue[2],
'us-ascii', 'replace')

solved the problem here.
