Hi Gerhard,

Yes, it works for comments too. I created an Email content type (in 
addition to the three default ones: Filtered HTML, PHP etc.) which uses 
only the emailfilter. I've patched the listhandler to allow you select 
the content type used when new content is created (also the roles that 
new users are given; I will post this listhandler patch shortly).

I'm using cvs 4.6 for this site. If the original email was iso-8859-1, 
then can just call drupal_convert_to_utf8($node->body, "ISO-8859-1")? 
It doesn't seem to be working for me: I get an empty string back. I'll 
double check.
