Mail cannot read Chinese characters. Message looks like a series of "??????". However, Safari can read Chinese characters. What setting can make Mail read Chinese Characters?

    Normally that indicates an encoding glitch, where the email headers are not telling Mail the right encoding to use.  The first thing to try is Message > Text Encoding and see if UTF-8 or one of the various Chinese encodings give the right display.

     

    Also go to View > Message > Raw Source and tell us what you see in the headers that say "charset=  ".
