    Double check that in your wp-config.php there is this line:
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    I don't know if it will be enough to solve the problem, let us know.

    ok, here's what happened.

    1. I now set this line in wp-config.php
      define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    2. then I successfully installed ALO Newsletter plugin
    3. then, i disabled that line in wp-config.php
      //define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    it seems to working now without any error messages. i'll see if it will work later.
