[Mailman-Users] Problems with mail encoding

I'm having problems with mail encodings other that UTF-8. Even I've set 
the default charset for iso-8859-1, it keeps giving me the error shown 
Another question I have is: even if I manage to fix this to work with 
iso-8859-1, how will mailman be able to process other encoding too, like 
for example windows-1252, us-ascii or utf-8? Just because not everyone 
has the e-mail client configured in the same way.

Below is the error. Thanks in advance.
