The Simeon Mail client version 4.1.1 does not support multipart/related messages delivered by an Exchange Server computer. The Simeon user will see a message indicating that this will be supported in a future release.


To work around this problem:

Administrators of Exchange Server should configure the mailbox of a Simeon user for plain text:

  1. In the Exchange Server Administrator program, bring up the mailbox of the Simeon client user and select the Protocols tab.
  2. Select IMAP4 (Mail) and clear the from "Use Protocol Defaults" check box. Under MIME Encoding, select the "Provide Message Body as Plain Text" check box

When future versions of Simeon support multipart/related messages, these settings can be changed.


Simeon Mail client version 4.1.1 is manufactured by Simeon, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
