[TriLUG] strange chars/formatting in received e-mail

I'm using pine/alpine as my e-mail client. I occasionally 
get e-mail that has strange chars where a para/end of 
sentence/linefeed might be. As well, when I "reply" the text 
isn't indented with a ">" at the start of each line, but is 
included as is (as if my client doesn't recognise the e-mail 
that I'm replying to as text).

Here's an example I got from my s.o. this morning. The first 
sentence starts with an "A" with a "^" on top on my screen. 
There are two more of the same char in the sample.


 	  They have changed our email and I am not sure that this will go
through.  The email has been down all morning since they did this
conversion overnight. 


Anyone know what's going on/what I have to do to see it as 

Thanks Joe
