        It's actually in UTF-8 encoding.  Somehow I missed the charset
part of the mime type in the original headers:

        When I render it as UTF-8, the text is composed of valid
simplified chinese characters.  It may be that your mailer (exchange
V6, apparently) is converting it to UTF-8 from whatever encoding you
are composing in.  As you no doubt know, GB2312 will be most widely
understood as an encoding in Mainland China, so disabling that
conversion will probably a good idea.

GB2312 is working on my system (not on your quoted text, but on the
original as it came back to me posted to the list).  I know nearly
nothing about encoding, so I check with the translator and she confirmed
that it was done in that.

If that's not working for everyone, somebody give me a better idea of
how to post it.

      I don't see these as valid hanzi when viewed as GB2312, BIG5, or
EUC-TW, the three most common encodings I'm aware of (mainland, Hong
Kong, and Taiwan, respectively).  Can you indicate what encoding these
are in?

For what it's worth, here are two pretty generic messages that you can
send, translated into Chinese (In Chinese Simplified -HZ encoding).
