You're welcome.

Strange. I wouldn't expect a problem in the 'in' queue to stop Mailman.
If you find a problem entry, please report the details.

I think it should, but it is the Python installation, not Mailman that
should recognize gb2312 encoding. It is not necessary to fix this
unless you find that these messages are in fact the cause of your
problem, but I think they should have just been moved to qfiles/shunt
by Mailman and not be causing a further problem. You can look at the
entries in qfiles/shunt with bin/show_qfiles or bin/dumpdb, and if
they are unwanted, just remove them.
