Hi Godoy,

Well, I mentioned the MTA options because I noticed that you can give
different options (such as quoted-printable to 8-bit conversion) to
different transports in a single MTA, and I've seen sendmail converting
from quoted-printable to 8-bit. It may be the case that, for pipe
transports, my sendmail (and your postfix) is not doing this

In any case, you can always use another archiver (such as MHonArc)
with Mailman, which will give you more than just ISO-8859-1 diacriticals.
Some archivers will give you attachment downloads, search and a whole
bunch of other things pipermail don't even dream of. I came to think of
pipermail as a placeholder for a real archiver.

PS: São Paulo today is grey, as most days around this time of the year.
Neither hot nor cold. It certainly doesn't look like winter here either.

BTW, I'm going to Curitiba this weekend (my girlfriend's parents live
there). So I'll probably pay you a visit :-)
