We have a multi billion dollar company that sends us automated payment
emails, when they pay invoices.

Each of their automated emails get rejected and bounced with the
following message:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.


Sent: 12/27/2007 10:01 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

lmccloud at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com on 12/27/2007 11:01 AM

The message contains a content type that is not supported

< servername #5.6.0 smtp; 554 5.6.0 Message with invalid header
rejected, id=13057-02 - Non-encoded 8-bit data (char FD hex) in
message header 'Date': Date: Thu, 27 Dec 2007 10:01:08 -0500

In my amavisd virusmails here are the applicable lines in the bad
header rejected email:

Date: Thu, 27 Dec 2007 10:01:08 -0500 <FD>CDT<A8>
x-Mailer: JES2Mail Copyright LaBayne & Associates Inc.
Message-Id: <1198771268000801157@>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
X-Amavis-Alert: BAD HEADER Non-encoded 8-bit data (char FD hex) in message heade
r 'Date': Date: Thu, 27 Dec 2007 10:01:08 -0500 \375CDT\250\n

Note in the Date: line the special characters <FD> and <A8>. Is there
any way to strip these out, or better, ignore them?

Also note, any normal email, sent from a person is NOT bounced, as
they are on a different email system.

Thanks for any help.
