 As for this - that's not fatal since mail body is in iso-8859-5 too. All
properly MUAs would be able to read that message.. I repeat - that's not
fatal. (though I don't know whether Netscape Communicator knows iso-8859-5).
 But of course means for selecting charset the mails sent in should be
provided to the user. That's mostly for compatibility with broken MUAs and SMS

 As for this particular problem  - I guess just moving iso8859-5 after koi8-r
description in /camel/camel-charset-map-private.h will make koi8-r the
default encoding for russian.
