I tried that when requested, and then waited for a message with a non-ASCII character in the body to come along. I finally found one, not in the body of the message, but in the signature ("rien à ajouter"). That is rendered correctly in the digest, so the change you mentioned seems to work as desired. I will continue to monitor for a while (this message will, of course, have a non-ASCII character in the body). Thank you.

Forwarded problem report to mailman at icann.org, who replied:

"I have updated the default format for digest messages to use MIME which
hopefully toggles that as desired."

Care to try and see if that works and is fixed, and reply with cc to
mailman at icann.org

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis                 Calgary, Alberta, Canada
