I'm confused: are you using mu4e or are you using Rmail? These are
two different packages, and AFAIK they don't share any code.

Also, bug#28266 explicitly says that the issue happens when
sendmail.el is used as the MUA, which means it's not about message.el,
a completely different MUA.

So I think these are probably two different issues, although the
result is similar. There are many ways to get raw bytes in Emacs when you want non-ASCII characters, and not all of them are due to the same

i use mu4e, not Rmail; i was addressing your earlier remark:

we have no similar issues reported by people who use the bundled MUA

i thought that the fact that both an mu4e user (me) and an Rmail user
(Charles) are experiencing the same issue ("The encoding issue I
mentioned seems to only apply to the saving of the mail buffer into the file specified in the FCC header") /even though/ mu4e uses message.el and Rmail doesn't, might indicate a common cause lying deeper in Emacs'

But if you think that this is just a coincidence of results, and that there are actually two different issues in play, i'll certainly defer to your knowledge and experience. Hopefully next time the issue appears for
me, i'll be able to narrow it down to a minimal working example.
