maybe there is something in your website which isn't using UTF-8 at all.

I guess in your local/config.php there is:

Probably you've read this thread?

Have you seen this one as well?

Maybe you can try setlocale(LC_ALL, "de_DE.utf8"); into local/config.php

You can also check the pages related to the mail form, and see if it
remains in iso-8859 instead of UTF-8. To check the encoding, you can
load the page into a text editor such as geany (http://geany.org/ note
the nice PmWiki website ;) ), it will display the encoding used in the file.

Hope this can help.
