Apostrophes in Forum Title are encoded within the Email Subject and Content

I've found with forum posts that have an apostrophe in the title are encoded within the auto-generated email.

For example this post;

Has the title - What's new in 2.1.6

The Email generated has the subject - What's new in 2.1.6.

Here's the contents of the email;
