Sorry,  I now see that I looked at a wrong message, not the one you
had in mind.

Richard's message indeed shows \201 characters, but that's only
because they were present in the message itself:

      (re-search-forward "[=C2=81=C2=AB=C2=81=C2=BB{}()]" nil t)

See those 0xC2 characters before each 8-bit Latin-9 code?

As for the encoding, it says this:

   Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

So the question now is how come Richard's Emacs sent such a badly
encoded message, and why did it think it was in UTF-8 when in fact it
was in emacs-mule?
