Problems With SMTP Relay

In my network I have some programs that automatically generate outgoing emails to internal and external users. Recently I have migrated to online Exchange hosting for my company but I had to install a third party SMTP relay program to do my outgoing email for the automated email programs.
Yesterday I did some testing and everything seem to work but I notice that when the email came through it funny looking characters in the body of the email, here is an Example of what one looks like:

[ y¿¿j)i¿o' o"[1]5"  ¿(~¿L¿¿'¿¿u¿5¿8¿0E^¿])¿vhjYby¿)¿zkzXv¿d^\zkzXv¿`¿¿-¿x¿5¿4J¿¿Perfect Travel Notice: Created job 55 for customer Perfect Travel[1]{^¿¿¿i\¿(¿:¿AI¿¿{]

But when I try the same test through my old Exchange server don’t have this problem. Any ideal why this might be happening?

Most likely it is your third party relay app. What are you using?

Any reason you don't just install the SMTP feature of IIS and use that?
