This is a problem with your recipient's email program. The solution is here, and quoting from that:

The Microsoft Outlook e-mail program sometimes sends e-mails in the Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format (TNEF). Most other e-mail programs, including Thunderbird, do not understand TNEF.

There are some solutions provided on that page, the most efficient probably being to disable TNEF in Outlook.
