How to force 8-bit mail transfer?

How can I force Zmailer to never use MIME quoted (un)printable (=E4, =C4
etc) on scandinavian characters or at least define the hosts that accept
8-bit, no matter what the host smtp server says about it?

It looks like Zmailer checks the other smtp-server for 8BITMIME when doing
EHLO hostname and if the sending Zmailer doesn't receive the flag then
Zmailer sends the messages 7-bit, converting the scandinavian chars to
quoted printable. Is there a way around this? I know there are hosts that
accept 8-bit messages ok, but they don't understand the EHLO greeting
(because the software is _old_) and have to revert back to HELO.
