      I am not sure where the fault in this lies.

      When using my iPhone and emailing through postfix to an Exchange server
      and Outlook client, a simple message like "Please call me" comes up in
      Outlook as "2+\��pz(!�޵�)h�������θ���v��jy2��y�ڜ"

      I then resend the same message from the same iPhone via a different
      Exchange server (rather that my postfix server) to the same recipient
      scenario and the message is received correctly. I am not sure where to go.

      Suggestions on what to look for or how to track this down?

      Thanks

        ... You need to capture a copy of the message as it passes through Postfix, use sender_bcc_maps with a suitably uncommon sender address to avoid capturing

          You need to capture a copy of the message as it passes through
          Postfix, use sender_bcc_maps with a suitably uncommon sender address
          to avoid capturing unrelated traffic. Direct messages for the bcc
          recipient to a dedicated mbox or maildir.

          Once the message is received, post a copy here. We need to see the
          MIME encoding of the iPhone's original message. Exchange re-encodes
          MIME messages into MAPI in an irreversible way so not much useful
          can be learned by looking at the Exchange mailbox alone.

          If you can configure an IMAP client (say mutt) to talk to Exchange's
          IMAP server, also post the rfc822 message source as seen by mutt
          (e.g. save the message to an mbox file).
