Hi All,
I have recently put in an exchange 2007 setup with 2 hub transfer servers. Some users are using Outlook 2007 but most are using Outlook xp. Internal NDR or Delivery reports are displayed fine in both versions however ndr or delivery reports that are sent from my smpt relay are only displayed in Outlook 2007. Outlook xp users see them in unreadable format or Chinese characters. If they forward the message then it displayes fine. I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this. My external smtp relay is a MIMEsweeper for SMTP from Clearswift

Can you check if they have the most recent updates and also disable Add-ons for search or third parties in outlook.

Do we have any AV on the server and client. On the Exchange server if the AV is file scanner do we have the exclusions set for not scanning the Exchanege files. Also if you see from OWA are you able to see them fine ?

I have AV running on both the server and client. Server has a dedicated Exchange scanner and does a on access scan. My Organisation does not use OWA and we have it disabled

Can you create a new profile in Outlook in English and verify or if there is any other Outlook XP client please try out there.

Unfortunatly Ive discovered the only way to properly fix this is to upgrade to Outlook 2003 or 2007
