Andreas Prilop provided me with an elegant solution that works
quite well with the Eudora mail client on a Mac.

<Andreas Prilop>

Get Eudora Standard Tables
from any Info-Mac mirror.

For outgoing mail, deselect any transcoding ("transliteration").
For incoming mail, select "Repair ISO-Latin-1".

For background information, see also

</Andreas Prilop>

This is the table that does the trick:

# "Repair ISO-Latin-1"
Repair (i.e. restore) an incoming message that has been converted
automatically but incorrectly from ISO-Latin-1 to MacRoman.
