Odd characters received in Outlook Express

A friend of mine receives a lot of financial reports via e-mail. He uses Outlook Express as his client (not sure which version) Mostly he has no problem, but he complains that from some companies, instead of "£1m " what he receives is "ý1m".

I am sure it must have something to do with mail format or character sets, but I cannot put my finger on what. I would be most grateful if anyone can shed some light on it - especially if there is an obvious remedy.
