[Mailman-Users] Emails with a Subject in Chinese to a Mailing List

    We've encountered this issue, and (long story shorter) it is fixed in 
Mailman 2.1.6 if you install the codecs for Python (I believe they come 
with Python 2.4).

    This issue works now for me on a Mailman 2.1.6 test box.  IF you are 
still having difficulty after looking into the codecs for Python, send me 
an email and I'll look more into what I did (this seems like a while ago). 
I believe the codecs are mentioned in the mailman FAQ actually.

Thanks - Ivan.
