yes, you will force your emails to everybody including those who subscribed
themselves to get, say, only Sunday's newsletters...

Yep. I know a lot about those little characters... I have a function in my
own site that cleans up all latin characters from plain text to HTML
encoding (é for é for instance) for posting and vice-versa when
sending newsletters... I will commit this in functions.inc for phpslash-dev
later on (after talking to Joe and others about it of course). However, I'm
with you with that. I have a solution for it though, but I would recommend
that you leave with it for now (set your encoding to latin-1 "ISO-8859-1"
instead of UTF-8, for now. So that when you post your stories the function
would take care of converting the characters.)

Tampering with the tables by hand is wrong. Getting things back to normal is
even harder as the site grows. And upgrading when you need to will become
daunting. So, try to use the Admin pages all the time. Just an advice from
somebody who have done just that and it took me a long time to get things
back to normal.
P.S. The latest Mailinglist.class and other mailing list related files are
now in phpslash-dev module from CVS. Just in case you happen to find other
known issues that we have been working on for the past few days. I will
commit what I have done so far, which is pretty much "stable", but has not
been tested by others yet. Patience...
