No. I went through my .emacs line by line to find out what the
cause is, and it turns out to be the line

   (setq mail-signature t)

Then I disabled that line and checked what happens when I insert
the signature by hand (C-c C-w). Before inserting the signature,
describe-coding-system says "none, use default". After inserting
the signature, it says "no conversion (binary)".

My signature file contains only ASCII characters (see below), so that
cannot be the problem.

No, just French text.

Directly from a French keyboard.

No, only when sending it.

   These default coding systems were tried:
     no-conversion iso-latin-1
   no-conversion safely encodes the target text,
   but it is not recommended for encoding text in this context,
   e.g., for sending an email message.

   Select the above, or one of the following safe coding systems:
     iso-8859-1 utf-8 iso-2022-jp-2 x-ctext mac-roman iso-2022-7bit
     raw-text emacs-mule no-conversion ctext-no-compositions
     iso-2022-8bit-ss2 iso-2022-7bit-lock iso-2022-7bit-ss2
     tibetan-iso-8bit-with-esc thai-tis620-with-esc lao-with-esc
     korean-iso-8bit-with-esc hebrew-iso-8bit-with-esc
     greek-iso-8bit-with-esc iso-latin-9-with-esc iso-latin-8-with-esc
     iso-latin-5-with-esc iso-latin-4-with-esc iso-latin-3-with-esc
     iso-latin-2-with-esc iso-latin-1-with-esc
     in-is13194-devanagari-with-esc cyrillic-iso-8bit-with-esc
     chinese-iso-8bit-with-esc japanese-iso-8bit-with-esc

Either C-x m or by replying in RMAIL, the effect is the same.

With automatic signature:

   buffer-file-coding-system's value is no-conversion
   Local in buffer *mail*; global value is iso-latin-1


   buffer-file-coding-system's value is iso-latin-1

> o What is the value of `mail-user-agent'?

   mail-user-agent's value is sendmail-user-agent

> o What is the value of `default-sendmail-coding-system'?

  default-sendmail-coding-system's value is iso-latin-1

Thanks for your help!
