Hi Experts,

I am trying to figure out why outlook 2003 running on a Windows7 64bit with Symantec 360 security installed break some mails down into the code shown here.

The personal information in the pasted code I swapped with ... - otherwise the information are as received.

Hope that someone else has experienced this problem and know whats going on

Best regards

MortenWB

Check you have the latest SP installed:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=E25B7049-3E13-433B-B9D2-5E3C1132F206&displaylang=en

Then check that these emails do not always come from the same sender or email address.
If they are ask the person what they are using to send the email.

If from various people and email addresses:
Have seent his before
Was always related to installed antivirus, or spyware software on the PC.
Can try disabling them and try to get the user to send the email again.

For a sure way to eliminate Antivirus, Spyware, or any 3rd party issues
Disble the applications
Close outlook
Reopen outlook using
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /safe

Get them to resend the email
Does it come through okay?

If it does you know its a 3rd party Add-on causing the issue

It is difficult to persuade many different customers to test their settings - although it migt be the only way forward.

For the described issue the resolution is the ideal starting place and should identify the problem for you.

Not really sure that difficulties communicating troubleshooting steps to customers warrants a B.
