"554 5.6.0" NDR when you try to send messages that have attachments in an Exchange Server 2007 environment

Assume that you try to send a message that has an attachment to a distribution list in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 environment. However, the message is not delivered, and you receive a non-delivery report (NDR) that contains the following information:
#554 5.6.0 STOREDRV.Deliver; Corrupt message content ##
Additionally, if content conversion tracing is enabled, the following information is recorded in a content conversion tracing file:
Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Storage.ConversionFailedException: Content conversion: Corrupt summary tnef content.

This issue occurs because of a race condition when Exchange server submits messages. The race condition occurs when different threads process a message at the same time. Therefore, the categorizer treats the message as corrupted and blocks the message submission.
To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
2655203 Description of Update Rollup 7 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
