Hello,

We are facing a rather weird issue.

We are running SBS2008 with exchange.

Everyting runs smoothly, except one thing. When a specific gmail account sends an email, if the email is plain text is proccessed properly, if the email is with attachement it is not delivered. When that guy sends that email to mine and i forward it to the original recipient it is delivered properly. It looks like there is an issue only with the specific sender (gmail) / receipient (exchange account).

Thank you

Have you tried doing a trace using the Exchange tools to see how it handles it?

I am not super familiar with SBS, but in the EMC, under tools, should be message tracking. You fill in the information and it shows how the message flows. You could also look at the message queue here and see if there are any stuck.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Hello,

i checked my options with the ones mentioned in the site. They are ok.
I found out in an article online that i can create a rule in the transport rules and configure something for the emails containing attachemnets to be treatted differently.

Does anyone know something about that?
Thank you

Thank you for your support.

The problem was a combination of configurations on Watchguard, exchange server and Eset for mail servers.
