No need. Go into Tools.
Pick Options
Pick Read
Pick Fonts
Ensure encoding is set to Western European (Windows)
Set the font/size to your favourite.
Click Set as Default.
Click Ok
Click International Settings.
Put a tick in the Box marked Use Default encoding for all incoming messages.

That will display them in the default encoding method no matter what format
the incoming msg uses.

Works for me, it's a Microsoft product, so YMMV of course.
