-scan is for terminal-based examination of archive contents.  It
does not invoke CHARSETCONVERTERS since CHARSETCONVERTERS is designed
for conversion to HTML, not plain text.

Will you provide more information on how you utilize -scan output?
It may help in determining what the best solution to your problem is.

BTW, if iso-8859-1 is the default encoding for the messages you
archive, you may want to look at the DECODEHEADS resource.  You could
instruct mhonarc to decode the non-ASCII encoded text before storing
the data in the archive.  Therefore, when doing -scan, the non-encoded
form the text will be shown.
