The sender's IP should be 81.218.47.225. Based on www.mxtoolbox.com it is in one BlackList. The mail should come from ISRAEL.
It might be a malformed mail or it might use unreadable text (Hebrew) by the mail client.
If the user is unable to read the mail with a client such as Outlook (please post mail client version), try using OWA.
What happens when reading the mail with OWA?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Well, if that happens only with some mails I would think there's something wrong (or at least "unusual") with the sender.
You could take more mails with the same issue and compare the IP address. If they are all the same, then there's something wrong/unusual with that specific sender.

Based on the mail's header your Exchange's AntiVirus (AV) should be Forefront. Please confirm.
Kindly post the AV's version.

You wrote you have "Exchange Server 2010 Version 8.3 Build 83.6" but that version doesn't belong to Exchange Server 2010. Either you have Exchange Server 2007 or the version you posted isn't correct.
I kindly ask you to check Exchange's version once again. Thank you.
Please, post Symantec version too as previously asked. Thank you.

Thanks for the feedback. When checking Exchange's version, please check the STORE.EXE version which is more accurate than the one shown using the Console.

Find the file STORE.EXE, right-click and select Properties, move to the Details tab and read the value of "File version".

It could be 8.3.264.0, not 8.3.254.0.
Please check and/or post a Screen Shot of the tab. Thank you.

So, you have 2007 SP3 Update Rollup 6. The latest Rollup for 2007 SP3 is number 13. I suggest you to update your Exchange until reaching Rollup 13. Please let me know.

I've taken my test Exchange 2007 SP3 and applied the Update Rollup 6 in order to get a system as similar as possible to yours.
I tried to apply Update Rollup 13 but it fails during setup. So I decided to follow Microsoft Update's directions and installed Update Rollup 12 and 8v2.
I suggest you apply the same (12 and 8v2) to yours.
