GMail; "settings" link at the top.  Near the bottom of the page is:

 Outgoing message encoding:
  O  Use default text encoding for outgoing messages
  *  Use Unicode (UTF-8) encoding for outgoing messages

Check the "UTF-8" option and "Save Changes".

I've no idea what mail-client support for UTF-8 is like in the
mail-clients used by 95% of the Internet's users, but I'm assuming that
there's a good reason for the default to be geared towards communicating
with local non-UTF-8 clients.  After all, there are so few options that
the fact that non-UTF-8 is even available says something.
