Windows 7: Copy and paste problem

Copy and paste problem

Using Win7 64bit and old outlook express.
On emails from GF in Japan if I copy/paste it comes up as some musically notated gobbledegook.
All other emails if I copy/paste are fine.
I suspect the prob. lies on the Japan side but any thoughts are welcome

Thanks for that R. Had a feeling that it was the way to go.
Not sure what the implications of installing additional language packs are, do I possibly end up with a Japanese desktop perchance?
