What does the following print in the message-mode buffer?
M-: buffer-file-coding-system RET
Does it say emacs-mule-unix or some such?
The documentation string of write-region says this:
This does code conversion according to the value of
`coding-system-for-write', `buffer-file-coding-system', or
`file-coding-system-alist', and sets the variable
`last-coding-system-used' to the coding system actually used.
So I'd say it's up to the application (message-mode) to set the buffer
to the right coding system, or else it should intercept write-region
and bind coding-system-for-write to an appropriate value.
