Exactly!!! Mailman has nothing to do with message. It gets correct coded message with only ASCII characters and it needs only forward it to mailing list participants, but it rejects. And problem is that it scans message subject and if finds ?windows goes madden. 
I want to note that many people uses windows coding and you could not force them all to switch to ISO.
