BTW, this occurs for replying to some emails without copying and pasting.

The settings I have for encoding (with the window's notes) are:

	Default character encoding        Automatic

        This is used when displaying messages with
        missing character encoding

        Outgoing character encoding       Automatic (Recommended)

        If 'Automatic' is selected, the optimal encoding for
        the current locale will be used.

So it sounds like I should change from the recommended outgoing character
encoding to UTF-8.
