System Email and Special Characters

It’s changing apostrophes, ampersands, and hashtags to html codes. I have Andrew’s Ski Store which changes (only in Gmail not in Outlook) to Andrew’s Ski Store.

If I change %blogname% and type out Andrew’s Ski Store it works. I don’t want to change all the instances of %blogname% in emails in case I miss one or forget one. Is there a fix for this?

Please disregard this support thread. It’s definitely been tracked down to be a theme issue. They’re not system emails that are doing it. They’re system emails created by the theme. I’m going to contact the theme designer.
