Windows Phone 7 email bug causes Exchange Server 2003 problems

eml

WPCentral notes a new bug has popped in how Windows Phone 7 deals with Exchange Server 2003 (which includes the service behind the Hotmail Exchange Activesync support).

It appears when email from such a server is forwarded the email is not included in an editable form, but rather as an .eml attachment, which is less than ideal.

Microsoft has acknowledged the bug in a tweet, but it is not clear if a fix beyond upgrading to the latest Exchange Server is forthcoming.

The the mean time, a work around would be for Reply to an email instead of Forwarding, and then change the email address to the forwarding address.
