Open thorough investigation we have found that it is the bug of PHPList and to overcome this issue one may need to edit the file Send_Core.php which is located inside the administrator folder and need to make the changes as mentioned below:

On lines 1023 and 1024 in send_core.php file you will find:

// value=”‘.htmlentities($subject,ENT_QUOTES,’UTF-8’).'” size=40></td></tr> –> previous code in line 1032
// value=”‘.htmlentities($from,ENT_QUOTES,’UTF-8’).'” size=40> –> previous code in line 1038
On line 1034 and 1040 in the same file you will find:
//value=”‘.htmlentities(iconv(‘ISO-8859-1′,’UTF-8′,$subject),ENT_QUOTES,’UTF-8’).'” size=40>
value=”‘.htmlentities(iconv(‘ISO-8859-1′,’UTF-8′,$from),ENT_QUOTES,’UTF-8’).'” size=40>

Now, need to replace 1034 with the contents of 1023 without the comment, and replace 1040 with 1024 without the comment and the issue get resolved as shown in below mentioned screen capture:
