Well it's not really a "?". When I receive the message and view it in
Outlook, the character looks like a little square. (like [] but then in 1
character) When pasting it in a new message, it becomes a "?".

Viewing the message source in vi, it shows up as:

Full headers are:
 Return-Path: <~Ag>

where ~A is one character.

I'll attach the message in an off-list reply.
