This can happen if IIS doesn't have a MIME type set for an email attachment type, such as .ppt. This results in ServiceDesk being unable to handle this MIME type and causes an exception to occur.
- Running the email monitor in debug can identify the specific email causing the issue and delete the offending email.
- Look for emails from the last time an email was received that has extensions for which no handler is installed on the ServiceDesk machine.
IE. If an email has a .ppt attachment either install PowerPoint or enter a placeholder SMIME type,
- Best guess remove emails around the right time allow email monitoring to complete then start resending the emails.
