Inline contents disposition is removed when you send a "Content-Disposition: inline" email message in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You send a Multipurpose Internet Message Encoding (MIME) email message by using Microsoft Exchange Web Services (EWS) in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment.
  • The Content-Disposition header for an attachment is set to inline.
  • The message format is plain text.
In this scenario, the inline contents disposition may be removed. Additionally, the attachment is not displayed as "inline" with the email message body in some client applications.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because EWS incorrectly removes the inline contents disposition when the content is converted to MAPI format.

To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
