Looking for Outlook setting.

Is there an Outlook setting to tell it to substitute a glyph from an alternate font if the current display font doesn't have a glyph for a particular character?

For example, I send a message with left- and right-ceiling brackets (U+2308 and U+2309) to a colleague who uses Outlook. No font is specified in the message. Outlook uses Arial or whatever the default is to display the message. The stock Arial that comes with Windows does not contain a glyph for U+2308 and U+2309, so he can't see the bracket characters. Most e-mail programs will do the obvious thing and substitute a glyph from another font; however, Outlook does not, at least not out of the box. Is there a setting down in the bowels somewhere that will get Outlook to do this?
