I'm using Mac mail, and for some reason, e-mails appear with large parts of text as lots of A's inside square boxes.  I verify disk, repaired permissions, but it doesn't help.  It seems that it can't find the right font to display the text under some mysterious conditions.  If I select the "A's inside boxes" and cut them and paste them in another application, then they show up as proper text.


How can I correct this ?


Many thanks for your help.

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
