Is there a simpler way to modify all arguments in a function before using the arguments?

Contrived example:

def send_email(from, to, subj, body, whatever, other, headers, you, like):
    # Okay, now translate all those into the appropriate encoding and
with special characters escaped
    # We need to translate each one separately so that, for instance,
a newline in the subject won't let you create additional headers
