I am using Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 on my cluster and I am its admin.
I have a chain of jobs which are being submitted consequently through a C# program to the HPC job scheduler.
I have set up the job scheduler in the way that it send me an email notification if the job is competed.
What I actually want is to set it up to send an email if a submitted job is failed not if it is completed.
I would be appreciated if you could share your thoughts

Currently, when notification is requested for job completion it is also sent when job fails or is canceled - any final state of the job will trigger it. Unfortunatelly we don't support filtering by a specific state at this time.

Is there a way to set the message content sent to the job owner?
In situation which I discussed in my question I get the message in my email but It is in Chinese or some sort of unicode which has been shown as Chinese characters.

There is no way to modify the message content and its lanugage should depend on the language version of your HPC Pack. Are you getting unexpected content on English localized cluster? If this is the case, what SMTP server are you using?
The expected notification content is:
Subject: Your job 3 is now in the 'Finished' state
Notification from cluster LUKASZTCLUSTER:
Job Id: 3

Thanks for your response and time
The HPC pack is in English
and here is what I get in the message

I am not sure what do you mean by smtp type?
It is the university generic SMTP server and it should be on English as well.
I am using the same setting to receive the UPS notifications by email and there has been no problem so far with it.

Thank you for your message. By SMTP type I just mean the specific implementation of the SMTP server. The most common right now are:
- Microsoft Exchange Server
Could you check with your system Administrator about, which one is it in your case?

I'll response as soon as I get it from my network admin

Thanks for checking this. Also what is your email client software? Do you have web access to your account? Is the message content same when viewed in both places?
Windows HPC Server sends email messages with UTF-16 encoding specified explicitly for both subject and body. Content type is set to 'text/plain' and content transfer encoding to 'base64'. Depending on the Microsoft Exchange Server configuration and version you may experience issues like the one described by you. I've found 2 KB articles, which might be a potential solution to your problem:
If the 3rd party software components are involved in message delievery process there is also a chance, that they causing the issue.
