The problem message is in the lists/<listname>/digest.mbox file, not in
the archive (well, it's probably in the archive too, but it's not
causing a problem there).

You need to open the digest.mbox with an editor that won't rewrap the
lines (i.e. not a word processor).

You are looking for an RFC 2231 encoded field that will have pieces
maybe like


The parameter may not be filename and the character set and language
may be empty or other than 'us-ascii'en', but there will be an
apostrophe somewhere after the first 3.

There may be more than one such, e.g. a filename in one header and a
name in another.

Remove the extra apostrophes and save the file and it should be OK.
