str object has no attribute decode. Python 3 error?

You are trying to decode an object that is already decoded. You have a str, there is no need to decode from UTF-8 anymore.

Simply drop the .decode(utf-8) part:

header_data = data[1][0][1]

As for your fetch() call, you are explicitly asking for just the first message. Use a range if you want to retrieve more messages. See the documentation:

The message_set options to commands below is a string specifying one or more messages to be acted upon. It may be a simple message number (1), a range of message numbers (2:4), or a group of non-contiguous ranges separated by commas (1:3,6:9). A range can contain an asterisk to indicate an infinite upper bound (3:*).
