Chinese characters from Outlook render incorrectly


I am trying to create an issue with chinese characters via a mail handler.  When I send the email via gmail, all characters render correctly.  If I send from Outlook 2013, I get spotty incorrect characters that look like this: 


Any help would be appreciated!

Good to know that you resolved this!
