My users are not recieving alerts new changes/new/deleted items are added in sharepoint.
I've setup the SMTP in sharepoint to send out alerts to users.
When a user signs up to get an alert they do get the initial alert saying they have signed up.
But it comes in an odd format:

(the from address)
=?windows-1252?B??= [intranet@myserver.co.uk]
(the =?windows-1252?B?? changes based on he format you specifie for the email to be in... ie unicode etc)

(The body of the email is also odd)
Alert 'Supplier Logins' has successfully been added on ''.
You will receive alerts in e-mail. The timing and criteria for the alerts depend on the settings entered when the alert was added.
You can change this alert or any of your other alerts on the My Alerts on this Site page.

Notice that the "been addd on "" doesnt have the sharepoint name in it.

Please help.
