Let me just make sure I understand your question. You're sending an email
encoded in some native Urdu encoding (whatever that may be), and you're
looking at the emails in Yahoo/Hotmail, which send data to the browser
encoded using UTF-8, and you're wondering how it does the conversion?
Like most character set conversions, they probably convert it from whatever
the source encoding is to some form of Unicode (usually whatever is most
convenient for the platform), and then into whatever output encoding they
wanted (in this case UTF-8).
If "whatever is most convenient for the platform" is UTF-8, then they may
just convert directly from the source encoding to UTF-8.
