FIX: The Before Receive tracking feature may not capture the correct message in BizTalk Server 2004

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When you receive an incoming message through a custom receive pipeline on your computer that is running Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, the Before Receive tracking feature may not capture the correct message. The message that the Before Receive tracking feature captures may be different from the original message that was sent through the receive port.
This problem may occur because the custom receive pipeline manipulates the original message and may change the message contents. When this behavior occurs, the Before Receive tracking feature on the receive port incorrectly captures the manipulated message as the original message.
