    There is no Persian l10n for Mailman. Thus, whatever language is chosen
    for the list is not Persian and does not have a character set in Mailman
    such as UTF8 which supports Persian characters.

    I am marking this as wishlist as the real solution would be a Persian
    l10n.

    if it is problem with the character set, so why is it only in digest and
    archive and not in the normal emails received from the list?

    I am in some l10n teams. So I can help with that If you really think that it is the problem with the character set.
    would you plz tell me what should be done, or where to start from?
    Thanks

    Actual list messages are sent with character set and encoding
    essentially as received. Archives and plain (but not MIME) format
    digests go through a "scrubbing" process to remove and store aside any
    non plain text attachments and to flatten the message(s) into a single
    plain text message. Part of this process converts the message into the
    character set of the list's language. If your list's language is
    English, this is us-ascii.

    If your lists are on your own server, it is possible to change the
    character set for English to UTF-8. You can do this by putting the line

    add_language('en', 'English (USA)', 'utf-8')

    in mm_cfg.py and restarting Mailman.

    If you would like to work on a Persian translation of Mailman, we would
    welcome your efforts. You can start by going to
