As I wrote, I have in my mm_cfg.py for Spanish lists (Mailman 2.1.1):

DEFAULT_CHARSET = 'iso-8859-1'
VERBATIM_ENCODING = ['iso-8859-1']

I know that there are problems with the 'who <password>' command when the
user's names include certain characters, but right now I was playing with
the command 'who' without adding or deleting users and suddenly (after
some 10 who requests) I stop receiving the answers and found this in the
error log file:

Nov 06 17:10:36 2003 (9455) Uncaught runner exception: ASCII decoding

  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/Queue/CommandRunner.py", line 147, in
    results = MIMEText(
UnicodeError: ASCII decoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

Some idea to fix this?  It has happened to me several times under similar
conditions not related with the users names.

Thanks in advance,
