We have recently deployed Exchange 2010 along with Outlook 2007 clients. We have an e-mail which is generated by a perl script on a linux system which on our old e-mail system was working fine but on Exchange 2010/Outlook 2007 part of the body of the message
is being split and put into several attachments named att00001.txt att00002.txt etc. If I send the same e-mail to a Lotus Domino/Notes client the message reads as expected and there are no attachments. Similarly if I send the same message to gmail it has no
issues. Pasted below is the plain text [view original] contents from gmail in case it helps somebody work out why Exchange/Outlook are mangling the message like this:
The same symptom will occur when an attachment body part in an e-mail message is sent before the message body part of the e-mail message is sent,
as described in the KB 969854
Also, the issue could also happen if the message has multi-part body content. Please post the message header of the problematic message, and check
if the content-type is multipart/mixed. Given a message with a multipart/mixed root, exchange will only display the first part as the body and others as the attachment, which is by design.
The workaround is, to re-compose the problematic message on the transport server by using customized event sink. You can use “Development”
forum for the advice about the writing of the event sink
