"Decode the body of the current message using coding system CODING.
This is useful with mail messages that have malformed or missing
charset= headers.
This function assumes that the current message is already decoded
and displayed in the RMAIL buffer, but the coding system used to
decode it was incorrect. It then encodes the message back to its
original form, and decodes it again, using the coding system you
supply at the prompt.
Note that if Emacs erroneously auto-detected one of the iso-2022
encodings in the message, this function might fail because the escape
sequences that switch between character sets and also single-shift and
locking-shift codes are impossible to recover. This function is meant
to be used to fix messages encoded with 8-bit encodings, such as
iso-8859, koi8-r, etc."
