decoding technique in incoming email


I'm writing some custom code to analyze spam for incoming mail to our mail server.  I need to know what the following encoding method is from the text snippet below.  Have tried several things (UTF-8, MIME, etc) and haven't had any success so far:

LOL, this case, I don't think it was spam.  Had captured the email temporarily to a client and it was from a major store.  But mail clients have to be able to figure out how to decode them, so it must be doable.

Thanks so much!  Way too much to keep track of...
