That is a UTF-8 BOM, try adding the following meta tag to your email so outlook understands the encoding.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

We already have this:

<meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" />

Is what you said different?

Are you using any international characters within the email? If not, try changing what you have to:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1">
