Re: [DML] extra ? popping up in email



It almost certainly has to do with the formatting/character set of the 
sending and receiving mail clients.  When it sees characters (eg. 
carriage returns) that it doesn't know how to handle, it will often 
replace them with a question mark.

See here for a little more explanation:
