Fixed In Version: mailman-2.1.12-21.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Mailman used a console encoding when generating a subject for a "welcome email" when new mailing lists were created by the "newlist" command. Consequently, when the console encoding did not match the encoding used by Mailman for that particular language, characters in the "welcome email" could be displayed incorrectly. Mailman has been fixed to use the correct encoding, and characters in the "welcome email" are now displayed properly.
