I've installed the codecs, and still got similar errors(whenever post
subject includes gb2312 chars) :

May 12 15:17:33 2003 (28321) Traceback (most recent call last):

    s = s.encode(outcodec, errors)
LookupError: unknown encoding

Very strangely, the LookupError didn't give the encoding name, like Sumeet's.

Any hint or suggestion is greatly appreciated.
