entourage email body strange formatting

When a mac user receives and email from a .gov [so it seems], the body of the email is unreadable with a bunch of symbols instead of text. When the user clicks 'reply' the body content outputs fine. This is the latest version of entourage, running on OS X 10.4.11.

Entourage 2004 or Entourage 2008?

If it is Entourage 2008, there is posting at today's MacFixit ( http://www.macfixit.com ) suggesting there are problems with fonts installed by Office 2008.

They suggest temporarily removing the Microsoft fonts folder from /Library/Fonts and restarting.  Alternatively, disable all duplicate MS fonts.

Is there any possibility that the .gov e-mail is being sent encrypted?

the encyption at the source of .gov is almost certainly the issue. Hopefully I can eventually fix this with 2008 Entourage.
