Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So the file extension and the proper name is lost. But when I try to send this file back to gmail, hotmail..etc, the filename in attachment does display correctly in chinese. I think that suggest this string could be decoded with some sort of function. iconv? I am sorry, but could anyone guide me in the right direction?
In addition to utf8, you may need to add big5. I have both installed on my Debian system (which you are apparently using) and I have no problems with displaying Chinese characters.
Is it safe to assume you have either IBus or SCIM installed? If so, just added extra Chinese input methods.
I do not know if it is necessary to add Chinese to the locales, but if you have not already done so, it would not hurt.
I hope that helps.

The line is "=?Big5?B?pmu3Uafvs3mkSKfvwsMgT1ZBKDEtNrawp7kpLnRvcnJlbnQ=?=". I wonder what encode format is this? I tried base64, its not.
