You can probably set something like

(setq mm-coding-system-priorities '(iso-8859-1 iso-8859-15 utf-8))

in the .gnus (or .emacs). I have it, although I doubt it's needed anymore
with my version

(GNU Emacs 27.1 (build 1, i686-pc-linux-gnu) of 2021-03-27, modified by Debian).

Installed my first Linux 1998, but took until 2000 that I used Gnus for
