Emacs -unibyte dealt with it appropriately, I think.  The sixth
character should be 0xBD (unless quoted-printable is screwing it up;
maybe you should try sending it in something other than text/plain to be
sure?).  I don't think it's hexl-mode that mangled it; I think it
happened when Mule tried to turn it into ISO-8859-1 or something along
those lines.  It is saving it correctly, even if it isn't representing
it correctly for you.

Anyway, you might try emacs -unibyte and see if that is what you were
after.  Or use M-x find-file-literally RET <filename> RET.
