[Mailman-Users] Latin 1 characters

I have noticed that latin 1 (or rather non US ascii) characters are mapped
to 3-strings starting with = character when messages are shown in the
Mailman archive. For example,

TeX repr. -> Mailman (?) translation
\~o -> =F5
\~O -> =D5
\"a -> =E4
\"A -> =C4
\"o -> =F6
\"O -> =D6
\"u -> =FC
\"U -> =DC
\t -> =09

Which part of Mailman does this translation? Can I affect this in any way?
Currently I am having a thought of scanning
for strings r'=[A-F0-9][A-F0-9]' and replacing them with the original
characters (and then rerunning arch on that list).
But is there a better way of getting the same result?

Any hints are appreciated.
