* Set apt-listchanges frontend to "mail" if sendmail is available,
the default behavior of apt-listchanges is to send a mail (if there
is a email_address in apt-listchanges.conf) even with pager/gtk
frontends so this will ensure the same behavior (closes: #579733)

email.Message package to construct a proper utf8 message
