Mac Mail with OSX.

When emails are open, their are some different unreadable characters in the return address and the subject line.  Sometimes even in the body of the email letter.  The rest of it seems ok.    Only on Mac Mail.

I suspect a font problem some where, but do not know where to look.

Thanks
