	No, the problem is that your MUA is encoding the message in 8-bit 
quoted-printable format.  The "=?iso-8859-1?Q?" stuff at the 
beginning is the way that the MUA tells the receiver what the 
character set is (ISO 8859-1), and the encoding is quoted-printable.

	You need to turn off quoted-printable within your mail program, 
and use plain 7-bit ASCII.  However, this is a question that is 
specific to your particular mail program, and you should start by 
talking to your ISP.
