It can be set to use UTF-8 for all outgoing emails.  Once logged into
Gmail, click the "Settings" link at the top, third from the right, and
find the "Outgoing message encoding" section in the "General" tab. 
Note two radio buttons: "Use default text encoding for outgoing
messages" and "Use Unicode (UTF-8) encoding for outgoing messages". 
Ensure that the latter one is selected.

If this message is Base64-encoded, then disregard everything that I've
just said...

Gmail is far and away the best, IMO.  No need to discard it based on a
poorly-chosen default setting (or MJ Ray's non-standard client
settings).
