Question:  Mime is a very normal format in which to receive email.  I assume what you are receiving that is a problem is UUEncoded?  (I.e. it'll start with something like "BEGIN 664 filename" in plain text, (the number might be a different three digit sequence.) )

IF that is the case, you can test by copying out that section of the text to a file, and running UUDECODE software against that file.

Unfortunately, the problem is caused by the way Exchange handles the attachment.  More correctly, I suppose it's a disagreement between how Exchange handles it, and how the copier is sending it.  (Office 365, as an Exchange system, has the same problem, which is where I first encountered this one.)  There might be a setting or update for the copier -- do you have manufacturer and model information?

Found the Microsoft article which describes what I'm guessing is the source of the problem.  Can you confirm that the symptoms look the same?  (And I suggest this as a possible cause because the message would look like there was problem with MIME, and many embedded OSs are *nix.)  (And that confirms that it does impact Exchange 2010.)  

To help find a possible real solution... I'm hoping there will be specific instructions or update for your copier.  Do you have the model information?
