Character Set issues

Please help

I am running Fedora on a server, when sending out emails some of the characters change.

Anthying with a ' " space or form changes to this ’ or any word with an ' changes eg the word week's changes to this week’s

Also certain emails, get a strike out line through the words of the email so that nothing can be read

I have tried changing the character set but no luck

PLEASE help, anybody please suggest somewhere to look or change

Looking forward to hearing from you

Mail is sent by Web page?

If your page is in (for example) UTF-8 codepage then you shoul alsa add Content-Type header in mail sent from that page.
So, add the following header to mail:
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
If your page is iso-8859-1 then header shoul be:
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
