We are using Outlook 2007 and Exchange 2007.  I THINK our exchange server updated last night.

We have been using a basic cfdocument type=pdf tag with the HTML produced by outlook in an email between the tags.   This has created PDF's just fine until yesterday.   Now the HTML formatting is all messed up.

In looking at the output of the outlook email, prior to yesterday this was the header:

<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns:m="" xmlns="">

Today, any email sent through outlook produces a header like this:

<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns:p="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:powerpoint" xmlns:a="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:access" xmlns:dt="uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882" xmlns:s="uuid:BDC6E3F0-6DA3-11d1-A2A3-00AA00C14882" xmlns:rs="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:rowset" xmlns:z="#RowsetSchema" xmlns:b="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:publisher" xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet" xmlns:c="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:component:spreadsheet" xmlns:odc="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:odc" xmlns:oa="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:activation" xmlns:html="" xmlns:q="" xmlns:rtc="" xmlns:D="DAV:" xmlns:Repl="" xmlns:mt="" xmlns:x2="" xmlns:ppda="" xmlns:ois="" xmlns:dir="" xmlns:ds="" xmlns:dsp="" xmlns:udc="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:sub="" xmlns:ec="" xmlns:sp="" xmlns:sps="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:udcs="" xmlns:udcxf="" xmlns:udcp2p="" xmlns:wf="" xmlns:dsss="" xmlns:dssi="" xmlns:mdssi="" xmlns:mver="" xmlns:m="" xmlns:mrels="" xmlns:spwp="" xmlns:ex12t="" xmlns:ex12m="" xmlns:pptsl="" xmlns:spsl="" xmlns:Z="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:" xmlns:st="&#1;" xmlns="">

If I switch the header to the old one, cfdocument works fine.   New one.  Not so good.

I can remove the header from the emails as they are processed, but I don't think that is a very good solution.

Any ideas?  Thoughts?   Solutions hopefully?
