If my guesses are right then the problems are (usually) caused by email
client configuration - lack of using MIME to explicitly declaring
charset used in message.
AFAIR default configuration of Outlook Express *fails* to declare
charset used in message header. Quite a few mail server "fills" missing
charset for non ascii messages
=> You may consider providing links (to microsoft web pages) for
properly *fixing* it
