Those are great pointers, thanks, but I still can't understand why
zope.app.mail's MailDir functions want to encode the message using the
'ascii' encoding, nor does there seem to be any way to suggest a
different encoding to the mail system.

How is it possible to send emails containing non-ascii encodings from
zope? Is there a problem with the python smtplib which is forcing this
behaviour? (Or do I still not get it...?)

Thanks for your help,
