Either that, or you contact the administrator of the list that he should 
use a better mailing list software which can properly handle 
quoted-printable encoded messages.

Alternatively you can setup KMail to send 8bit messages by default. But 
please note that the developers of KMail don't recommend this since 
unfortunately a lot of mail servers will mangle those messages so that 
all 8bit information is lost and all non-ASCII characters will be 
converted to some ASCII characters, e. g. my lastname (Klöcker) is 
often mangled to Klvcker or KlXcker.
