hotmail and japanese

anyone had any experience with sending japanese email to hotmail.
if i change the encoding to Shift-JS then it comes out funy (mojabake)
in yahoo etc.

do i need to test each email address then set the encoding
accordingly? if so, how would i go about this

tx

ok. worked it out. maybe this will helpsomeone in the future:

in my notifier

  s = StringScanner.new(user_email)
   if s.exist? /hotmail/
       @charset = "EUC"
       else
       @charset = "utf-8"
    end
