Hmm.  I would rather leave it in the document's directory (such files
are always read first) to not pollute the TeX distribution.

The same.

For local files you don't need that, of course.

I only see question marks, no Greek.  It seems that you have encoding
problems, either with your mailing program, or within the file itself.

Yes.  You have to explicitly switch languages, probably using
\foreignlanguage{}{}.  Remember that in fonts which use the LGR
encoding, Greek letters are positioned where you normally find Roman
