Given my circunstances I tried including these lines from Mailman 2.1.3:
# Encode any unicode strings into the list charset, so we don't try to
# join unicode strings and invalid ASCII.
charset = Utils.GetCharSet(self.mlist.preferred_language)
encoded_resp = 
for item in resp:
if isinstance(item, UnicodeType):
item = item.encode(charset, 'replace')
results = MIMEText(NL.join(encoded_resp), _charset=charset)
and commenting these:
# results = MIMEText(
and (in spite of my ignorance) it seems it works!
