ValueConstantDescription
1ICONV_MIME_DECODE_STRICT If set, the given header is decoded in full conformance with the standards defined in RFC2047. This option is disabled by default because there are a lot of broken mail user agents that don't follow the specification and don't produce correct MIME headers.
