Default Unable to forward Email with attachments

Please Login to Remove!

1 of our VIP complains that he cant forward emails(that have attachments), unless he downloads them locally on his device.

That is when he forward an email (that has an attachment), only the email header gets forwarded without the attachment

Pls advise

Can you test the following: Send a plain text message (i.e. not HTML or Rich Text) with an attachment. Can this be forwarded?

Also, which Exchange version are you using?

You are on the latest Exchange version, so that should be fine. Just let me know if the plain text works.

The background is about MIME types and encoding of emails. Maybe BES has an issue with how certain mails are formatted. Have you tried to send him an email in plain text with an attachment? What was the result?
