I'm going to assume this is an Exchange environment?

In Exchange 2003, you may have recipient filtering turned on. This will bounce incoming emails if the address does not match a user's email address in the GAL.

In Exchange 2010, recipient filtering is handled by the Edge Transport server.

Do the recipients get anything? I don't see anything in those headers that looks like a bounce message. Do the exchange server logs report anything at that same time?

Also... There are 2 different email address domains that the email is being sent to. Are both having the issue?

ok.. I think what is happening is that somewhere the formatting (don't know the exact term) of the email is being lost.

if you save that email posted above on your desktop as a .eml file, can you open it? I just did and was able to open it in outlook. It has 1 Word document attached called "Sparkroom R&D Status Report - 11.05-2010.docx." I cannot open the attachment since I don't really have the email.

What client are you using to send and receive these emails?

I understand what you mean...sparkroom users are using some sort of web-email like google or something like that, and the receiver end is using outlook 2007.

I'm going to guess that when the user opens the email on, say Outlook, this is what they see? If that's the case, it looks like something (possibly the originating client or server) is adding an extra line-break in the headers. What *does* View -> Options show as the header?  The first blank line, by Internet standards, marks the end of the header fields. Everything after that is assumed to be the body of the email.
Other's have had this error... now we just need to figure out how to fix it.

Then it would appear that the sparkroom users' clients are goofing up something somewhere along the way.

Try having them send the same email (attachemts, recipients and all) using a different client. Something other than web-based email. I'm willing to bet $ that the email will come through then.

At this point, I would guess that the issue is not on your end.
