In Outlook Express under Tools, Options, Send, International Settings
it is possible to specify that only English (? ASCII) is used in headers
and under Tools, Options, Send, Plain Text Settings & Tools, Options,
Send, HTML Settings it is possible to specify whether or not 8-bit
characters may be used in message headers.

These settings seem to apply whatever encoding is used for the body
of the message.
