Encode the subject prefix even when it consists of only ASCII characters?
encode_ascii_prefixes(language): Encode the subject prefix even when it consists of only ASCII characters?

If your mailing list's default language uses a non-ASCII character set and the prefix contains non-ASCII characters, the prefix will always be encoded according to the relevant standards. However, if your prefix contains only ASCII characters, you may want to set this option to Never to disable prefix encoding. This can make the subject headers slightly more readable for users with mail readers that don't properly handle non-ASCII encodings.

Note however, that if your mailing list receives both encoded and unencoded subject headers, you might want to choose As needed. Using this setting, Mailman will not encode ASCII prefixes when the rest of the header contains only ASCII characters, but if the original header contains non-ASCII characters, it will encode the prefix. This avoids an ambiguity in the standards which could cause some mail readers to display extra, or missing spaces between the prefix and the original header.
