My guess it that you have a lot of users with MUAs that don't conform
to RFC 822 (let alone RFC 2822), and they are sending non-ASCII in the
headers. Mailman doesn't like that. (Do your users normally use the
"ae" ligature---ISO-8859-1 value of 0xE6?)

If it's what I think it is, no. Mailman 2.1.x simply assumes that
(raw) headers are not going to contain non-ASCII, period. *All*
headers that will display as non-ASCII must be MIME-encoded.
