When I convert an iso-8859-1 text that contains quotes (The mail message I tested was composed with Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000) They get converted to an character that displays as a cubic character so it doesn't exists.

Don't know if it's relevant but before using quoted_printable_decode() one of the characters that is diplayed wrong is written as =92

Reproduce code:
Compose a mail message with outlook express in iso-8859-1 encoding and put some ' and " in it. Convert that with iconv and you'll see unexpected results.

Expected result:
I expect the text to be the same as when I view it in iso-8859-1 encoding.

Actual result:
Strange characters in the converted text.

I discovered that the following ascii characters go bad with iconv (Maybe more but these I found).
133, 146, 147, 148

I now workaround like this:

$str = str_replace(chr(133), ".", $str);
$str = str_replace(chr(146), "'", $str);			
$str = str_replace(chr(147), '"', $str);
$str = str_replace(chr(148), '"', $str);
