Nope, it's jiblish.

What you had to do was send it as "JIS". And receipient must have
something to be able to read JIS e-mail.

Unicode I believe is international standard character set (I could be
entirely wrong about this), so most likely uses 1 byte for a character.
Many of the oriental character sets uses 2 bytes for a character, so
unicode won't help at all in deciphering, say, JIS.
