Encode or decode message bodies for 8bit transfer encoding. This is only very little encoding. According to the specs:

RFC-2045 Section 2.8 defines legal `8bit' data:

 "8bit data" refers to data that is all represented as relatively
 short lines with 998 octets or less between CRLF line separation
 sequences [RFC-821]), but octets with decimal values greater than 127
 may be used.  As with "7bit data" CR and LF octets only occur as part
 of CRLF line separation sequences and no NULs are allowed.

As you can safely conclude: decoding of these bodies is no work at all.

Error: Decoder for transfer encoding $type does not work: $@
Compiling the required transfer encoding resulted in errors, which means that the decoder can not be used.
Warning: No decoder for transfer encoding $type.
A decoder for the specified type of transfer encoding is not implemented.
Error: Package $package does not implement $method.
Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does not implement this method where it should. This message means that some other related classes do implement this method however the class at hand does not. Probably you should investigate this and probably inform the author of the package.
