Our issue is as follows. Emails are sent to an SBS2003 server via a PHP script - the attachemtent is a simple CSV file. We can receive the file and are running Exchange 2007 however the recipient gets the following email both internally and via OWA. We also have the same problem when sending to another SBS2003 server. I have attached the PHP script.

Cheers Simon

Problem is the encoding and headers migth not be done correctly. I recommend ussing a PHP-mail.class which has been testend and is known to work properly with attachments.
http://phpmailer.sf.net
http://swiftmailer.sf.net
Typical they are also easier to use
