[Bug 702278] Re: Persian characters coded into "?" s in digest and archive

Actual list messages are sent  with character set and encoding
essentially as received. Archives and plain (but not MIME) format
digests go through a "scrubbing" process to remove and store aside any
non plain text attachments and to flatten the message(s) into a single
plain text message. Part of this process converts the message into the
character set of the list's language. If your list's language is
English, this is us-ascii.

If your lists are on your own server, it is possible to change the
character set for English to UTF-8. You can do this by putting the line

add_language('en', 'English (USA)', 'utf-8')

in mm_cfg.py and restarting Mailman.

If you would like to work on a Persian translation of Mailman, we would
welcome your efforts. You can start by going to
