Works for me.  Both your mail and the name pasted from the web page use
only the 0x51031 character in my Emacs (which is pretty recent).  But
maybe that's because I'm using a language environment that is slightly
modified from German to favor UTF-8:

 "German-utf8" '((charset ascii latin-iso8859-1 mule-unicode-0100-24ff
                          mule-unicode-2500-33ff mule-unicode-e000-ffff)
                 (coding-system iso-latin-1 iso-latin-9 mule-utf-8)
                 (coding-priority mule-utf-8 iso-latin-1)
                 (documentation . "\
This language environment is almost the same as German,
but favors UTF-8 encoding.")
                 (unibyte-display . iso-latin-1)
                 (unibyte-syntax . "latin-1")
                 (nonascii-translation . latin-iso8859-1)
                 (input-method . "german-postfix")
                 (tutorial . "TUTORIAL.de"))
