Are you sending from the Live.com web mail or from the Windows Live Mail
(WLM) program on your PC?
If the WLM program, which version (look in Help, About Windows Live
Typically what you are seeing is caused by an anti-virus or anti-spam
program corrupting the MIME headers. This could be on your PC, your
mail server, the recipient's mail server or the recipient's PC.
The place to start is to make sure that your anti-virus isn't scanning
outgoing mail. With some anti-virus (and anti-spam) programs, simply
disabling the e-mail scanning function doesn't really disable it. It
simply tells the program not to flag any messages. It still processes
all the messages and may still cause send/receive problems. What you
may need to do is uninstall the anti-virus program, then reinstall it
using a custom install option and unselect the e-mail scanning component
You mention that you tried to deselect MIME. In WLM that would mean
that you selected Uuencode. In that case, the message should not have
nay MIME headers, although there might be some x-headers that mention
MIME such as
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V12.0.1606
If some other MIME headers, such as Content-type are appearing in your
Uuencoded message, then some other program has converted the message to
MIME format after sending.
