Sometimes I have non-english emails (arabic for example). When I try to open them with windows live mail, it doesn't show them correctly.. for example such this:

&1588;&1603;&1585;&1575; &1610;&1575;&1605;&1575;&1606;

(I changed it a bit to show here as I want)

I had a look at options, there was encoding on

arabic(windows)

but I didn't find anything else. When I open this mail on yahoo however, there is no problem.

What can I do?

Do you have the Arabic Language Pack installed? It is available in Windows Update for Windows Vista and 7, and also can be downloaded from Microsoft's website for Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit). It can also be installed from the Windows XP CD. –  Patches Mar 16 '11 at 20:47
