This ``raw-text'' thingy might be a sign of the problem, as well as

It's not normal for an email buffer to use any of these two
``encodings''.  What does Emacs tell you if you type
"M-: buffer-file-coding-system RET" in the buffer where you compose
such problematic email messages, the ones that mix iso-8859-1 and
iso-8859-15 characters and end up being encoded in iso-2022-jp?

Anyway, I'm beginning to think that maybe this is some bug in VM.  Did
you consider asking on the VM mailing list?

That might also be a problem.  But I asked you to try to remove from
your .emacs everything that is not required to us VM per se.  Did you
try that?
