Content-Type: multipart/appledouble - Mail Problem


Some of my end-users are having their emails rejected by Symantec_AntiVirus_for_SMTP_Gateways on a certain mail-server. They are trying to send standard word docs via a Macintosh Mail Client. This mail client is evidently wrapping each attachment in its own mime-type.

First off, why? Why would you ever do this?

Secondly, how do I get around this seeing as how the admin of the problem server gave me nothing but apathy when I contacted him?

I do not have a Mac in front of me and my end-users are several states away. What I had planned on telling them was to look in their client and try to find a toggle that would eliminate such behavior. That or go find another email client.

Any ideas? I have pasted some of the email source below...

Code:
 

Content-Disposition: attachment
Content-Type: multipart/appledouble; boundary=Apple-Mail-24-454564665

--Apple-Mail-24-454564665
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Hamot Top 50 NP.doc"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Type: application/applefile; name="Hamot Top 50 NP.doc"

Content-Type: application/msword; x-mac-creator=4D535744; x-unix-mode=0644; x-mac-type=5738424E; name="Hamot Top 50 NP.doc"
