Thanks for the reply , but you obviously did not read my post.

I have got as far as finding out the message is recieved good by  
cyrus & when placed into the user mailbox  folder ,the messages IS good.
but when sent to the client it becomes corrupted.
memory on both systems has been tested. & the disk was  SCSI low  
level formatted & checked before hand.

I have samples of the message sent to dual email systems, (good & bad  
systems), as well as the message  that is stored in the "bad" system.

2 different network systems are use , my test network consists of 2  
computers & a switch.

what i am asking is HELP on the next step, I have confirmed the  
network & I have confirmed the systems.

specifically i am asking the sending system between client & cyrus,  
or possibly WHAT packages /systems may be involved in causing this.

section of mime SEEN ON CLIENT which is bad


good section  STORED ON DISK in users folder  /var/imap/spool/user/xx/2.
