mk_logwatch tries its best to determine the correct encoding of a file, and to recover from errors if it is wrong. If that does not work for you, you can configure a specific encoding using the bakery rule or by adding e.g. "encoding=latin1" to the options in the config file (see config examples in {{~MySITE/share/check_mk/agents/cfg_examples/}}).
