Keyboard Characters Messed Up in Live Mail

We just purchased a new PC with Windows 7 and Live Mail. In Mail, the keyboard characters are messed up. We get emoticons when typing (?) or things in "" marks. It is very annoying. The keyboard was set to English - Canada/US in Control Panel. I have noticed several comments on the same problem in the Vista Forums.
