Did you upgraded the mail storage, too?

Do the messages look wired in other ways, e.g. do they have header lines

No, I don't think so. The client renders the message, Dovecot should not
alter its content.
Do this happen for new accounts, too? If not, maybe you need to remove the
old cache files.
What mail storage do you use? With Maildir you could easily create a new
mailbox and drop a file with:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Message-ID: <test2344434 at localhost>
Su c=F3digo de activaci=F3n
there then view it with a client.
