That is caused by the value of `mm-coding-system-priorities'.
It defaults to

(iso-2022-jp iso-2022-jp-2 shift_jis iso-8859-1 utf-8)

in the Japanese language environment.  The background is:
euc-japan or shift_jis is preferred for files but iso-2022-jp is
usually used for mail and news for the traditional reason in
Japan.  The value may be suitable to users who mainly use
Japanese.  However, I modified it personally into

(iso-8859-1 iso-2022-jp iso-2022-jp-2 shift_jis utf-8)

because I sometimes write English messages.

By the modified value as mentioned above, iso-2022-jp-2 will not
be chosen if there are only ascii text and £ sign.  I'm going to
change the default value in Japan into the same value as I'm
using, later.

Thank you.
