MIME-Version: 1.0

This is a multipart message in MIME format.

Content-Type: text/plain;

this happens only when using a secondary account set up in Outlook as a POP/SMTP account. their regular exchange based account does not generate the output above. i was wondering if this is an outlook config issue with the POP account or a server config i can tweak? any help would be depply appreciated, thank you all.
