I  know  what  is  happening because I have this problem on all my
lists,  since in the italian language we use accented vowels (such
as àèéìòù) and they get encoded in quoted-printable by the default
configuration  of  most  email clients. The problem is that either
Ecartis  or  some  other  MTA in-between (all messages suffer from
this  problem,  so  if  it's an in-between MTA it must be one that
processes all messages coming to Ecartis) is incorrectly stripping
out  the  Content-Transfer-Encoding  header  (without decoding the

This  makes  both  quoted-printable and base64 encoded messages to
not  be  decoded  by  MUAs,  because they lack the above-mentioned
header.  The  only  solution I found so far is to tell my users to
set  their  email  client to send emails as 8-bit instead of QP or
Base64.  However,  it  would  be  really nice if Freelists handled
messages correctly... :-)
