$transfer_encoding= "B" [, string
$linefeed= "\r\n" [, int
$indent= 0 ]]]] )
Encodes a given string
str by the MIME header encoding scheme.
charset specifies the name of the character set
str is represented in. The default value

"Q" (Quoted-Printable). Falls back to
"B" if not given.
linefeed specifies the EOL (end-of-line) marker
with which mb_encode_mimeheader() performs
line-folding (a » RFC term,
the act of breaking a line longer than a certain length into multiple
lines. The length is currently hard-coded to 74 characters).
Falls back to "\r\n" (CRLF) if not given.

A converted version of the string represented in ASCII.
Example #1 mb_encode_mimeheader() example
$name = ""; // kanji
$mbox = "kru";
$doma = "gtinn.mon";
$addr = mb_encode_mimeheader($name, "UTF-7", "Q") . " <" . $mbox . "@" . $doma . ">";
This function isn't designed to break lines at higher-level contextual break points (word boundaries, etc.). This behaviour may clutter up the original string with unexpected spaces.
