Strange spam emails cannot be viewed in MS Outlook 2013

I keep receiving strange spam emails which have no content and which are encoded in UTF-8. I can view the emails in the BT Webmail screen but when I receive the emails in MS outlook 2013 there is no content.

 

In MS Outlook these emails have the senders display name set to a single character e.g. 'A' and the subject line also contains a single character e.g. 'X'. There is no other email content and I'm assuming MS Outlook cant convert UTF-8.

 

Looking at the header I can see the format is UTF-8 so wondered if this was part of the problem? I notice that sometimes the emails contain odd symbols ike hearts or stars which are probably UTF-8.

 

How can I see what the content is in MS Outlook?

 

Below is an example of the message header, I have changed my name to firstname.surname.

Re: Strange spam emails cannot be viewed in MS Outlook 2013

I get a lot of these also. My issue is that most are not getting picked by by the spam filter, so I waste a lof of time every day deleting them. If anyone can suggest a rule that will pick this rubbish up I'd be most grateful !
