I don't know about slrn, as I don't use it (Emacs & Gnus is my news
reader of choise).
I can assure you that Mutt handles charsets fine though. My locale
environment settings are:
% env | egrep 'LANG|LC_' | sort
My .muttrc file includes:
% grep charset .muttrc
# my terminal can show all characters of this charset
# what different charsets I will use when sending
That's all that is necessary to read email messages in Greek and post
in US-ASCII or Greek (when 8-bit characters appear in the message).
