   I use 'w' to save and then use emacs to open and also the generic editor on 
OSX. If I forward it to mu4e in emacs the message looks fine.
   Here is an example for you to try:

   Γεια σου, Ντέιβ,
   Η λέξη που ψάχναμε....

I saved that to a file with `w', opened it in Emacs.  Emacs guessed
that it was UTF-8 text and displayed what looked like plausible Greek
(but then it's all Greek to me, so...!).

What encoding does Emacs or your generic editor on OS X (TextEdit?)
guess?  Can you persuade it to interpret the file as UTF-8 instead?

In Emacs, you can do this with:

C-x C-m c utf-8-unix C-x C-f /path/to/file
