I just upgraded from a pretty old version of MM to 2.1.29 and everything appears to be working OK.

I noticed the following in my error log though.

I only have a few lists that archive using the built in functionality.

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xb5 in position 26: ordinal not in range(128)

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I may have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me!
