        There is no problem using Unicode (UTF-8) in e-mail as long as program
used to read message at receiving end can read UTF-8. OutlookExpress can do this,
Oulook 97 and newer also, other newer mailreaders can do this as well.
Probably you have to play with Outlook options a bit, it may have wrong settings.
Try to use plain text instead of HTML / rich text; send a test letter to yourself.
