Note that users may try selecting the MIME format digest rather that
the plain format. Depending on their MUAs, they may prefer this. It's
not a solution to the problem, but it may be an acceptable work around
for some users.

What Mailman version is this?

If this is not a recent (2.1.9+) Mailman, that may be the problem.

It may also have to do with the messages themselves if they don't
specify an appropriate character set.

Also, what do the messages look like in the archive?
