I have one user who can not open a message from a list server with the following error:

The MIME data in your message is incorrectly encoded. This can only be caused by a bug in either your mail software, an intervening gateway or firewall, or LISTSERV.

Is this in Outlook ?
Can he open in OWA ?
Is the message singular or there are multiple e-mails with same problem ?
Can another user open this e-mail ?
What is this "list server" and how does it send the e-mail ?

You need to figure out if it is the SENDER , SERVER, RECEIVER, CLIENT COMPUTER or what is the main cause. So you would need to try multiple scenarios.

Is this message encrypted ?
If you send this message to Gmail or other e-mail server can you see it ?
Looks like an incorrect message encoding.
