Windows 7: How do I fix Windows Live Mail emails?

How do I fix Windows Live Mail emails?

When I send an email from my Windows Live Mail, and have contracted words like it's, don't and so on, and quotation marks and other characters, the received email contains other characters I did not type. For example when I type it's, the receiver reads it as it’s When I type something with quotations like "hi how are you?", the receiver reads it like this “hi, how are you?”

How can I correct this? It's very annoying, to say the least!

Check the character encoding option in WLM and see what you are using. It's probably something your receivers aren't using, which will cause those odd characters to be inserted in the emails.
