    Every once in a while, emails forward from my Samsung Android to clients they using Exchange server accounts with outlook 20013
    they got it in MIME format ..

    how I can fix it from Samsung Android so make it send without MIME format ?


    How I can fix it from Microsoft outlook 2013 ?

    example for email in MIME format :

    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=""
    Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=""
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

    When a mail client sends a message, that message is converted into MIME. It is the responsibility of the receiving mail server to ensure the data has been received properly, and then for the recipient's mail client to convert the message from MIME back into a human-readable format. Also, messages encoded as base64 renders plain text unreadable in its native format. Again, it is the responsibility of the recipient's mail client to unencode base64 into a human-readable format.

    Send the same messages to another mail account you own and see if they are readable. It may simply be a configuration issue on the receiver's end.
