The error message suggests that they have "content-type:
multipart/appledouble" with "content-transfer-encoding: base64",
instead of 7bit or 8bit. You can't have base64 for a composite.

Ah, their client was probably broken.

This kind of reject is turned off by default in Postfix.

A user tries to send a Word-Attachment via our Webmail server. The
attachment ist named

"Angiotensin II hypersensivity; 2003.doc"

and the MIME type is shown by SquirrelMail as "multipart/appledouble"

When he tries to send that mail, he gets

Apr 28 11:35:20 postamt postfix/cleanup[6157]: 7D7B72206F1: reject: mime-error invalid message/* or multipart/* encoding domain: base64

Usually our users have no such problem, so I'm asking myself "What's
wrong here?"

Can I take bets on the semicolon ?

I guessed the same. The luser also said he changed "Mozilla" for
"Seamonkey" and now his problem is gone.

Rather unlikely...

Never ever relay emails based solely on a user-provided header.
Down that path leads madness, despair, and the RBL.

The only "intuitive" interface is the nipple. After that, it's all
learned.
