If Thunderbird still lets users access about:config, you should be able to find 
some relevant preferences in there if you hunt around.  I have the feeling it's 
not just an encoding issue, though... In SeaMonkey, the original messages are 
readable whether I set it to use Western/ISO-8859-1 or Unicode/UTF-8, and the 
part you quoted stays full of garbage characters with both encodings as well.

If you can't find anything in about:config, you might try checking whether the 
messages are readable in a webmail client or SeaMonkey.
