This is probably a "WONTFIX" for now.

The Windows version of Claws-Mail suffers font-substitution problems. So if you
receive a message that uses a glyph (character) not supported by the font
currently in use to display the message, there is no fall-back on the OS to
provide a proper glyph from another appropriate font for that character. So you
would see strange replacement chracters: square boxes, etc.

One trick is to open that message in a more 'native' application that supports
this on Windows so that you can see those characters. Another way is to use a
font that has all the characters you receive. A fancy "all unicode characters
everrr!" type of font might work here.

You are receiving this mail because:
