As Ken said, the default for modern Linux distributions is UTF-8 anyway.
Is it possible you're overriding things in ~/.profile or similar,
setting environment variables LANG, LANGUAGE, LC_ALL, or LC_..?

As a test, try

    LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 mhshow

to set LC_ALL for just that one run of mhshow and see if it works
better.  Then you just need to make it permanent, ideally for your whole
X session and not just a shell.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Locale might help if you're using

Cheers, Ralph.
