When you select more than one type of encoding in an Outlook Express 6 e-mail message, the most recently used (MRU) feature does not retain the list that was selected when you quit and then restart Outlook Express. Only two encoding options appear: the option you have currently selected and the option that is set as the default.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
