Comment (by hakre):

 Can someone please check practically against phpmailer SVN? I am not able
 to do so. That would be great to improve phpmailer here as well!
 takayukister have you tried that? have you reported feedback to phpmailer
 devs as well?

 I think this problem is related to the fact that your wordpress-users
 submit their data as UTF-8 (that's what standard wordpress settings is).
 But then wordpress uses phpmailer. Within phpmailer documentation and
 source I did not find a word that it supports multi-byte character
 sets/encoding with the header encoding. Did you? So passing strings are
 encoded as ASCII strings.
