Hi i18ners,

I received this message and tested German confirmation mail at my test 
site but no trouble. The confirmaiton message had iso-8859-1 charset 
declared properly and no error within mailman. Has anyone experienced 
similar problem?

Hi Tokio!

I noticed a problem with the German template files under mailman 2.1.5.

If a user wants to change his mailaddress globaly for several lists, he
gets a mail witch he must send back for confirmation. In this mail,
witch is generated from a template, are special german letters (ü, ö,
etc.). Mailman has problems with this special letters, the confirmation
does not work. Changing the mailaddress globaly via the webinterface
works witout problems.

I changed the templates for my 2.1.5 installation and the special German
letters are substituted. No every thing works fine.

However, it would be nice to have this new German templates in 2.1.6
too. I can change this templates and send them to you for integration
in the final 2.1.6 release, if you can tell me, where I can download
the latest 2.1.6 tar.gz archive. I haven't found anything on the mailman
homepage or on sourceforge and my knowletge of cvs is very small so I
can't use the cvs to get the latest release :-(.

Thank you and best regards,
