[Bug 1644356] [NEW] UnicodeError when attempting to send digests

Public bug reported:

This may not occur in a normal installation, but on a test list I had an
accumulated digest.mbox with non-ascii characters in some message
subjects. I then changed the list's preferred_language from English to
Japanese and during some subsequent testing, a digest was triggered. The
creation of the digest would throw UnicodeError in attempting to create
the MIME toc part and in attempting to set the plain (RFC 1133) digest

This may be due only to the change to a language with a different
character set or it may be due to the fact that Mailman's character set
for Japanese is euc-jp, but the email modules output characterset for
euc-jp is iso-2022-jp. The exception thrown was due to unicodes not
representable in iso-2022-jp.
