An IMAP4 client cannot send an email message that has a large attachment in a mixed Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server 2003 environment

In a mixed Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 environment, an Exchange Server 2010 Client Access server handles the proxy requests for Exchange Server 2003 servers. A user accesses a mailbox which is hosted on an Exchange Server 2003 server by using an IMAP4 client. In this situation, the Exchange Server 2010 Client Access server advertises that the "Literal+" command is supported during the "capabilities" broadcast to the IMAP 4 client. However, the IMAP4 client may encounter certain issues. For example, the IMAP4 client cannot send an email message that has a large attachment.
This problem occurs because Exchange Server 2003 has issues with the "Literal+" support.
