I'm not sure what's happening. Yes, Outlook represented the message in a
character set (code page) which wasn't compatible with the list's
language character set, probably us-ascii, but this should affect only
plain format digests and archives where the message is represented in
the list's character set. For individual messages sent to the list
members and MIME format digest, there should be no transliteration.
