AFAICS, you're sending
	From: =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Dennis_Bj=F6rklund?= <db(at)zigo(dot)dhs(dot)org>
which is an instance of the encoding scheme Bruno mentioned.  I have
never heard that it is only supposed to be used in Subject:
... certainly there are a ton of people besides you who use it in From:.
So I think you are legal.

Whether your name is being displayed nicely is a whole 'nother matter.
On my machine I see "Dennis Bj-rklund" or "Dennis Bj rklund" depending
on which display I look at :-(.  I think this is a font issue, but I
don't have enough motivation to track it down...
