I'm using M2, which is the mail client integrated into Opera browser. It's as Unicode-capable as the browser is, [at least, I was able to read Mark Reed's example with no trouble: sending, I'll type your example text-- éšźņɑξ --as I havnt had the chance to test the outcome yet. I'm not sure of it, since I dont see a charset option, so it might send it in the default charset.] *Muke! -- E jer savne zarjé mas ne (You put music in my heart Se imné koone'f metha And with the spirit of an artist Brissve mé kolé adâ.
