I looked at other messages from this sender (received directly) and
the subjects were encoded entirely so I thought this was also the
case for the messages transported by mailman.
Now I asked him for a mail sent from the same environment as the list
messages were and indeed, the 8 bit characters were encoded
separately (Microsoft Entourage) - stupid.
I told him that...

...his mail client is likely broken and he will try Opera next time.
Thanks for the detailed explanation.
