Consider the following scenario:
In this scenario, the attachment is garbled or is unreadable. Additionally, the attachment is displayed as the following picture in the email message body:
Collapse this imageExpand this image
Note The following content is displayed in an affected message header.
This issue occurs because of "begin 664." This indicates that UUEncoding is being used. When an email message contains an inline UUEncoded attachment, multipart MIME instead of MIME should be used. Otherwise, Microsoft Exchange translates the UUEncoded data as a part of the message body that has a MIME designator.
To resolve this issue, encode the message by using multipart MIME.
Note The issue cannot be resolved on an Exchange server because Exchange displays the messages according to the specified MIME encoding type.
