Thanks for your answer. Well it seemed that my message got encoded
with 8 bits instead of mime and somehow got corrupted. 

It seems however that the culprit is gmail (I use the smtp server of
gmail). When using their setting coding 
            Use default text encoding for outgoing messages
then that problem occurred. When I changed to 
            Use Unicode (UTF-8) encoding for outgoing messages

Then that problem disappeared, although I am using xemacs 21.4.19 no
