That's hard for me to answer ... I guess it depends on what you see at
your end.

>2. My Editor is not storing in UTF-8.

I believe this to be true.  Well, you don't say exactly what happens
from your step 7 (stored the result in UTF-8) and sending the message
out; the problem could be there.  How did you get the saved text from
the saved editor file into nmh?

That is false; the message in question was definitely marked as UTF-8
(which corresponds to your locale).

I'm curious as to how your editor deals with the following lines if you
cut and paste them into it:

This is a micro sign (U+00B5): µ
This is a Euro symbol (U+0020AC): €
This is the Pi symbol (U+03C0): π

The micro sign is available in ISO-8859-1, the Euro symbol is not available
in ISO-8859-1 but is available in Windows-1252, and Pi is only available
in Unicode (well, it might be available in something else as well).
