support for non-ASCII characters in mailbox names and search
substrings.  It also supports non-ASCII message headers and content
encoded as specified by Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions

that improve international support including language negotiation for 
international error text, translations for namespace prefixes, and 
comparator negotiation for search, sort, and thread.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
