I have several workflows which send email notifications. Some of the outgoing emails have very strange titles, like the following:

Скоро срок СЃдачи поручРµния СоздатСЊ расписаниРµ по дисциплинам

Задачи - Настроить работу блога на =?utf-8?Q?=D0=BA=D0=BE=D1=80=‏

Both sentences are utf-8 encoded, in russian. Some of the characters inside the sentence were replaced with incorrect ones, I have no idea what is the reason of it. Is there any way to investigate or fix it?

Thanks! enter image description here

thanks for your suggestion. The thing is that I was using sharepoint designer to create a workflow, which is sending emails. So there is no c# code. – Sam.Shekhovtsov Feb 4 '13 at 8:33
