Sorry, somehow your messages didn't arrive into my normal inbox, and I am
just seeing them.

I don't think there is a way.  UTF-8 needs decoding.  If there is no header
saying so, no decoding will be done.

Perhaps you can write a function that adds "charset=UTF-8" to all the
text/plain parts of a message?
