JSI Tip 1153. UUencoded messages are not always decoded by Exchange IMS?

If your Microsoft Exchange Server Internet Mail Service (IMS) does not always decode UUEncoded body parts, it is because it has not received a proper MIME version header.

. You can alter this behavior by upgrading to the latestest Exchange Service Pack.

. Use regedt32 to navigate to:


   Add Value name ContentTypeEQMimeVer, as a type REG_DWORD, and set the data value:

      1 - If a top-level Content-Type header is found, treat the meassage as MIME.

      0 - A valid MIME version header is required.
