letter or as "Z" + above-dot. MimeUtility.encodeText uses the former, Mail.app the latter.

Does this means also that when Mail.app receives a mime with the name
=?utf-8?Q?Z=CC=87o=CC=81=C5=82w=2Ertf?= it correctly saves the
attchment as "Żółw.rtf" ?? It would be weird as I'm not aware (but I'm
not an unicode guru, and that's why I ask you for this test) of utf-8
decoding where an UTF8 sequence alter the previous Ascii character and
the Z is wrote in clear ascii in that encoded string.

You can try using java.text.Normalizer. Let us now if this works.
