This works (as long as one's email client is set up properly of course).
It raises a related question though.
I'm trying to start up a bilingual list (English-Finnish). Being still
new to Majordomo, I accidentally got an administrative bounce on one of
my own posts the other day. I chuckled ... and then the content of the
bounced post caught my eye.
If my posts come to me by the "normal" list route, lower case o-umlaut
displays as lower case o-umlaut.
If they come to me via a bounce, lower case o-umlaut displays as =E6.
This is rather interesting; why does it happen? Can I safely assume
that it will happen *only* on bounces, so that it is a non-issue?
