FAQ
After a couple of months with no problems, today my messages to a
mailing list appear to be getting turfed by mailman.

Mailman 2.1.1, yellow dog linux 3.0.1, postfix

Maillog indicates the message goes to Mailman.

The Mailman error log has:

Oct 11 22:50:15 2004 (953) Uncaught runner exception: decoding Unicode

the message I'm trying to post comes from Mail 1.3.9, Mac OS 10.3.5,
with mail preferences set to use plain text for message composition. I
don't understand where the unicode is supposed to be coming from.

Any help appreciated!

    Anything that is not US-ASCII (including directed quotes, Euro sign,
    em-dash, etc) might do it. Probably you'll be OK with Latin-1
    (guessing from your address you probably use French accented letters
    and certain punctuation, eg, guillemots), but even that can't be
    guaranteed for all internationalization settings.

    What version is your Python? 'unicode' is a Python function, it seems
    odd that it's not supported.
