That's something to do with the quoted-printable MIME type used in the
body of many e-mails. See RFC 2045, section 6.7 at, eg:
However, your mail client should translate those character escapes
back to normal text before displaying it -- perhaps you're seeing the
escapes in some messages because those messages don't have the correct
MIME type in the headers?
