I don't even think switching to a "real" e-mail account would solve the problem. With almost everything these days graphic and web-based, smartphone and tablet, the days of pure ASCII e-mail are gone for the most part. Actually, you're fine. Your message is sent "Quoted-Printable". > MIME-Version: 1.0 > Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1 > Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable This is a way to encode 8-bit data (in your case ISO-8859-1) into a 7-bit (ASCII) form. Where you have characters that aren't "printable ASCII" they're encoded as "=" followed by the hex code of the character (so =0D=0A is a new line). It's then up to the MUA to decode those characters and (if necessary) transcode the characters from ISO-8859-1 to the user's character set (in my case UTF-8).
