Sending mail message with unicode text

Hello.
I have a problem with sending Unicode text in mail message.
So what I do:

First of all I have some template file like this:
=================================
<html>
<head><title>Test Message</title></head>
<body>
<p>Hello {0}</p>
</body>
</html>
=================================

This text will include Unicode text too.
Late I want to load this text and replace "{0}" with some value and send it
by mail.
then I do following:
=================================
// Read message text from predefined file
System.IO.TextReader textReader = new System.IO.StreamReader(fileName);
text = textReader.ReadToEnd();
textReader.Close();

// Assign message
MailMessage mailMessage = new MailMessage();
mailMessage.From = "so**@mail.com";
mailMessage.To = "so**@mail.com";
mailMessage.Subject = "Test";
mailMessage.Body = String.Format(text, "some UNICODE text");
mailMessage.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html;
mailMessage.BodyEncoding = Encoding.Unicode;

// Send message
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = Settings.GetValue("SmtpServer");
SmtpMail.Send(mailMessage);
=================================

Now about the problem:
when I got message sent by this code it looks something like this: (actually
this is an anothe mail)
=================================

When I don't use mailMessage.BodyEncoding = Encoding.Unicode; it send normal
mail but with "?" character instead Unicode symbols.

So how can I load from file then replace some values and send HTML format
Unicode text?

Thank you.

I think it's the way you're reading in the file. Try using the
StreamReader constructor that specifies the encoding of the file as
well. E.g.:

System.IO.TextReader textReader = new System.IO.StreamReader(fileName,
System.Text.Encoding.Unicode);

I think that will do the trick.

HTH,
