That is how the poster encoded the text.  Chinese requires Unicode, however
emails and newsgroup messages cannot transmit Unicode in its original
format, so it has to be encoded in an Ansi-compliant manner.  That is what
you are seeing.

However, what you show above cannot be the actual text.  Please show the
actual text as it really appears in the message.

Indy does not recognize the 'big5' charset, which is one encoding used for
encoding Chinese.  So Indy cannot automatically decode such text.  You will
have to decode it manually.
