It could be the handler, it could be the database, you didnt indicate the JIRA version?

It could be database related, what is it, mysql? Its support for multibyte UTF-8 characters is not very good. Postgres is much better.

I'd be interested to try JEMH against such an email, if you want to forward me a 'text' dump of the entire content I'll happily push it through to confirm correct outcome?
