I see them correctly and they are declared correctly.  But this is not
related to your problem since you obviously used a different machine
and a differnt program (Opera) to send this message.

`standard-display-european' is a bad idea (it's obsolete and often
leads to trouble).

LC_CTYPE isn't necessary when LANG has the same value.  But I won't
hurt neither.

You most probably don't want LC_ALL.

Try "emacs -q -no-site-file".  If this still doesn't shot the 8bit
character, show us the output of `M-x describe-coding-system RET' in
this Emacs session.
