If you want to avoid this issue on lists whose preferred language is
English and you have access to the server, you can change Mailman's
character set for English by putting

add_language('en', 'English (USA)', 'utf-8')

in mm_cfg.py. The downside of doing this is that message body parts that
have Mailman added msg_header or msg_footer will be base64 encoded.
