Hi, I want to decode this email subject:

Subject: =?iso-8859-1?B?VGVzdGluZyBlbWFpbCBoZWFkZXJz?=

It was generated using MailStudio @Message from 3rsoft.com, but I don't know what kind of codification is using..

I tried using the MIME::Base64 decode function but it didn't work.

The "translation" of the subject is: Testing email headers

Could you help me?
There are also another lines of the email header that are encoded, like the From line. I guess that it can be decoded using the same script that will decode the Subject line.

Thanks.
