Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It only seems to happen when the receiving server is M$ Exchange 2007.
If you put it that way then this is not an interoperability problem on the GNU/Linux side of things. This is the Linuxquestions.org Linux - Networking forum. Not a mcrsft forum. That'll be /General. Please first search the vendors knowledgebase first for support for their proprietary commercial products. In this case you might want to check the software for available service packs as I understand there's been some fixes for conversion errors, else check Technet for troubleshooting at "Managing Content Conversion Tracing". Thanks for understanding that a freely accessable, provided-at-no-cost, volunteer-driven GNU/Linux forum should not have to cater to problems on the proprietary, commercial, standard-breaking ClippyOS side of things.
If you are not willing to try and help me with an issue that I have with the GNU/Linux side of things, that is all you have to say.
I only receive an back error from Exchange servers. The emails is received fine by other mail servers, but the attachment is not reported as the correct mime type. The file is still readable though.
I have contacted the people responsible for the servers we are having problems with, and they say that they are not having issues with email from any other source. Since there are many of them, and only one of us, it makes sense to start with our server.
I have also posted on the ClakConect forum, with no luck either. It seems that the community is no longer willing to help us guys who need the help.
Let's break things down so you understand: your colleague uses an OSS MUA. You use an OSS MUA. You admitted you received the email OK using another email address (other MTA mail route). You clearly said that your colleague had a problem when sending email through a certain brand MTA and the returned message supports that. I say the fact that you find you do not receive the answer you expect does in no way reflect back on this community or its willingness to help out. That said, BinHex makes sense because it's a Mac but if you believe it's something with the MIME type then you should have posted that more clearly and support it with the necessary details.
NP. Ask your colleague to resend the attachment but have him configure MUA compression for "AppleDouble" or "base64" (UUE) format. If that doesn't work ask him to compress it with (tar and) gzip and then use 'mpack' to send it. Let me know if those arrive OK through the troublesome MTA.
I have had them pack the file into a zip. This email was received fine, but the attachment couldn't be opened at the other end. I am waiting on them to try using AppleDouble or base64. Will report with the results.
