I think I understood it, your English is fine.

If I'm not mistaken, that version of Emacs indeed does not support
Chinese characters in the Unicode character set.

I didn't say to fix the mail in Emacs, I said to fix your mailer
(which I saw in the headers to be something called "AIMC 2.9.5.6
2002.10.10").  The fact that you use a mailer other than Emacs
doesn't mean you shouldn't set it up correctly.

This is especially true when posting messages about non-ASCII
characters: how can you expect me to understand the problem if the
Chinese characters you are writing about appear as random garbage on
my screen?  Thanks Emacs saints that we have "M-x rmail-redecode-body",
or else I'd be lost.

That's true, for your version of Emacs.  What would you like Emacs to
do instead?

You can "undo" the "undo".  For that, after you invoke the "undo"
command, press some key that doesn't change the buffer (I usually
press the Right key) and then invoke "undo" again.  It will now redo
the last change you undid.
