I have a problem with japanese text. My code sends the japanese text in an email basically. The problem is when I am using the encoding type as EUC-JP I am getting the proper text in email but in microsoft-outlook only whereas in gmail and yahoo the same japanese text apperas as junk.

Now if i change the encoding as JIS then yahoo and gmail is showing proper japanese text but in outlook it is coming as junk.

I have tried Shift-JIS also but it is also apperaing junk in outlook.

Any suggestion how to resolve.

Here is the code:
