I've checked a load of my outgoing emails, originals which were not replying to
another message. Most of the unsigned and signed but not encrypted messages
show charset=windows-1252 -- but I'm on linux.
Some unsigned and some signed, not encrypted, messages show UTF-8 and I can't
immediately see any reason for the difference. On one occasion, of 4
consecutive unsigned emails to the same person, three were 1252 and one was utf-8.
Since this affects signed and unsigned mails, it is unlikely to be an enigmail
