[Mailman-Users] Smart quotes are not properly encoded in mbox

Hi guys,

Is there a way to display/keep smart quotes (for example ‘Apple’ and “Banana”) properly in mailing list’s  mbox?
It seems that the smart quotes at the example above are saved with uni-hex code.
> =E2=80=98Apple=E2=80=99
> =E2=80=9CBanana=E2=80=9D

The received email from the mailing list do not have this kind of issue though.

The smart quotes feature can be disabled with the following instruction on Mac but I do not think that it is a good idea to have all the Mac subscribers disable smart quotes only for mailman.
