In the Script that triggers the mail notification I changed the command to

Result: All Umlauts are there

So I logged in as root (as well as uucp) and tried from the command line:
echo abcäöü | mail -s "Täst" $email

-> worked as well.

Ah, but you are not using the same mail command as the script. They call
"sendmail" - note that Postfix has a small sendmail binary so that
script like that continue working with Postfix.

I would also add something to copy the environment from the script to a
file. Something like:

set > file
locale > otherfile

in case when you test with sendmail if it works, compare environments.
