I'm having trouble sending a message from one of my lists using
Mailman 2.1.11. The message itself is entirely ascii and sent with the
US-ASCII charset, but it's failing with a "unicode is not supported"
error. My (extremely unsophisticated) reading of the error log leads
me to believe that the problem ise happening when the footer is
applied to the message, but the footer text is also ascii.

Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated!

From the error log:

Is your Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py unmodified?

What is happening is we are attempting to convert the footer which is
the result of interpolating the %(...)s replacements into msg_footer
into a unicode string, but it is already a unicode string.

It is unclear to me how this is happening.

What do you see as the value of msg_footer from the output of

bin/config_list -o - listname | grep -A10 msg_footer

Does it begin with u""" ?
