        Well, in either case, something intervened along the way (some
 MTA) and protected the accented char after you had sent the mail.

        The solution is to use a MYA that does properly do PGP/MIME --
 or send in an encrypted ballot, which is base64 encoded, I think, and
 should not trigger ther helpful MTA enroute.
