I've noticed I'm not the only one with these kinds of problems, but I
can't seem to find a solution that works. Right now there are 35
messages in qfiles/shunt, and over half of them I can't see anything
wrong with.

Is it possible to just have Mailman ignore these errors and process the
mail anyway?

Adding add_language('en'..) with different charsets seem to work. Oddly
enough some messages with Content-Type set to utf-8 end up in shunt, but
get through just find if I add add_language('en', ('English'), 'utf-8')
to mm_cfg.py. However, having to manually process these messages is
starting to become annoying, and if I keep the utf-8 as the default the
Mailman adds a mime part with the signature for all non utf-8 mails,
which is the majority of mails, that cause annoyances for some users.
