I have a pretty simple rule running on an Outlook 2007 mailbox (Exchange
2007 on backend). The rule basically says to forward all mail that comes in
to an SMTP contact that is defined in Active Directory. The rule works fine
with regard to simply getting the mail to the contact. What's odd is that
the headers are converted to TNEF in the process. I've done everything I can

Exchange to only send in plain text when sending to the contact domain. I've
even set the contact properties to never use rich text format. So, my
question is whether setting this type of rule is know to "mangle" headers in
the way I'm seeing and if there's a way around it.
As an FYI, if I simply choose forward on a piece of mail and manually

Thanks for any help!
