I see.  Then Jens's point comes to my mind.

Most desktop and web application is UTF-8 friendly but e-mail may not
be as much.

Just putting Japanese as follows makes my e-mail to change from ASCII to
ISO-2022-JP before sending data.  (I am in UTF-8 environment and editor
is vim which should be creating file in UTF-8 but mutt should be
converting UTF-8 to ISO2022 when it finds non ASCII character.
