Question Strange Characters when sending emails from BB

Please Login to Remove!

When I send an email the recipients get "Garbage" in Outlook. Sometimes they get what it looks like chinese or Japanese characters or sometimes they get blocks or question marks. This is an example:

xxx24951;xxx8307;xxx28277;xxx25185;xxx25964;xxx29728;xxx8303;xxx25954;xxx29472;xxx24931;xxx28270;xxx25701;xxx25120;xxx8313;xxx26740;xxx8293;xxx17991;xxx8265;xxx28483;xxx29806;xxx28261;xxx8308;xxx25939;xxx30051;xxx26994;xxx31092;xxx17696;xxx24941;xxx27753;xxx17696;xxx28792;xxx28524;xxx29801;xxx17440;xxx29797;xxx25445;xxx28532;xxx8306;xxx28493;xxx30052;xxx25964;xxx3374;xxx3338;xxx21514; xxx26984;xxx8307;xxx24941;

Any idea where is this coming from? How to fix it?
Currently server and client versions running 4.0.
Unit is a 6750.

Please help!

Are you running a BES?

If so, I should move this question to the BES Admin corner.

Have you checked your character encodings, maybe this is configured incorrectly somewhere.

(Also, please don't post duplicate threads. I've removed the one in RIM Developer)
