Unicode characters mangled when sending as attachment

The other day I tried sending a UTF-8 encoded LaTeX file as an attachment, only to find out that when the file arrived, non-ASCII characters (such as German ö, ä, ü and ß) had been replaced by two question marks.

The file is just attached as is to the email. You need to make sure that the text editor on your computer uses utf-8 when opening the file. For example, with TextEdit on Mac OS X, you need to manually select utf-8 in the file open dialog because it doesn't detect the encoding automatically.
So it seems the problem lies elsewhere... Sorry to bother you with this and thanks for the quick reply. :-)
