I cannot reproduce this with the current emacs-26 branch tip.
However, in my case, Emacs asked for a suitable coding-system each
time I wanted to send a message.  Answering UTF-8 produced a valid
encoding in both cases.

So perhaps the difference, and the reason for a problem you see, is
the default encoding in your case, which you didn't show.  (In my
case, the default is Latin-1.)
