Error text: Decomposer Library: error decomposing mime part
Affected module: brightmail_engine
Product version: Symantec Brightmail Gateway 9.0
At least one additional error that describes the type of decomposing that encountered an error appears along with this error. The error that appears is mentioned as follows:
 Decomposer Library: cannot do decomposition type
Examples of type are parse_html, cleanup_urls_txt, or decode_base64.
This error generally occurs because the message part being scanned has a formatting error within the message that causes the specific type of decomposition to fail such as invalid quoted-printable encoding, or badly constructed HTML. While this error may prevent one or two types of antispam scanning, all other antispam scanning is performed. A negligible loss of effectiveness occurs due to this error.
If the messages receiving these errors come from a known source, you may notify the sender that there are formatting problems with the message. If you get the error consistently for a specific type of message and if the message is uncaught spam, forward samples of the message to the Symantec Security Response Center.
