It happens here a fair amount as well.  I've assumed it has to do with
the origin of the email.  That is, if it comes from a Blackberry or
such, or some kind of "enclosed" system, such as a company's customer
service system, those encode differently than normal client-based email.
If so, don't think there's much to do about it but click on OK and let
it send.
