Hi Guy's:
One of my client has Exchange 5.5
All of a sudden no one able to receive any attachments from the internal orgnaization but, if I send it as administrator they will be able to see the attachment & also if I send it from my hotmail or gmail they will get it, but if send as normal users they will get this error:

MIME-Version: 1.0
X-Mailer: Internet Mail Service (5.5.2653.19)
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
boundary="----_=_NextPart_001_01C701E7.AAD0EB00"
Date: Mon, 6 Nov 2006 21:12:52 +0000 (UTC)
This message is in MIME format. Since your mail reader does not
understand
his format, some or all of this message may not be legible.

are all the users on the same exchange 5.5 server?
where does the message go with the attachment?
do the users get the message without the attachment?
any errors while sending the message with the attachment?

No there was no any antivirus upgrades. We are using Norton 7.5 Corporate Edition.
The strange is when you send the meail as a user the recepient users get the mime related error. If the email is send as administrator everyting is OK. We even added on of the users to the administrators  group and did not solve the problem. Your advise is appreciated.

Thanks,
