[Mailman-Developers] UTF8 problem with Microsoft Exchange and Mailman 2.1b4

I have a problem with UTF8-encoded e-mails from a Microsoft Exchange
2000 server which are sent to a Mailman 2.1b4 mailinglist server.
Exchange uses "utf8" characterset, so that the users will get an
extra "attachement" with every mailinglist message (charset "utf-8"
is used for the body, and charset "us-ascii" is used for the signature
of the mailinglist).

An example of the headers and body is included, below.

Is there a way to change the filtering in Mailman, so that these messages
are converted to a more common charset, such as: us-ascii or iso-8859-1 

For more information see:
(Mailbox Tip: Allow Non-UTF-8 Mail Clients To View Messages Sent
from Exchange).  I tried to get the Exchange server changed, but
didn't get any response of the local administrator. ;(
