Unfortunately, the RFC that specifies email processing said that characters ranged from 0 to 127, quite innocently, and many email servers, listservs, and other tools decided to play by the book. MIME then came along with methods of representing 8-bit octets in 7-bit content (hence the =E0) and of designating the character encoding (mapping from characters to octets) in use.
