It is doing what it should be doing.  TIdMessage will only encode values
like you show if there are any characters below ASCII #32 (non-printable
characters) or greater than ASCII #126 (extended characters).  Your name
actually does contain 1 extended character in it (the "ó"), thus TIdMessage
decides to encode it for proper transport.  The actual encoding is based on
the OS's particular locale.  ISO-8859-1 is the default for non-foreign
systems (Japanese, Korean, etc).

Specify a name without any extended characters in it.  Your email address
uses "o" instead of "ó", for example.
