I have a problem similar to the one posted by Doc Schneider a few days 
ago, but I have not been able to fix things. I have this in logs/errors:

Oct 25 15:22:15 2005 (9353) Uncaught runner exception: ASCII encoding 
error: ordinal not in range(128)
Oct 25 15:22:15 2005 (9353) Traceback (most recent call last):

    username = username.encode(Utils.GetCharSet(d['user_language']))
UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

As per Mark Sapiro's directions, which helped Doc, I did the following:

1) shut down the Mailman qrunner

2) edited  private/mylist.mbox/mylist.mbox (I removed all messages since 
before the last successfully delivered message)

3) removed all files from qfiles/shunt

4) did  bin/arch -wipe  mylist

5) restarted  Mailman

6) sent a test message

The test message gave me the error messages shown above.
