It is probably a function of the character set of the Email and
your list's default language.  It looks like you are sending in
iso-8859-1. Is your list's language one of those listed in
Mailman/Defaults.py (as over-ridden in Mailman/mm_cfg.py) as
having a charset of iso-8859-1?  If it isn't, you might
 - over-riding the charset expected for your list language
   in your mm_cfg.py if appropriate
 - changing your mail program's configuration to send in the
   "expected" charset
 - loosen the restriction in Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py on
   header/footer and body charset matching

That sounds like a quirk of your mail program.  (Check the FAQ.)
