i get the final configuration that can solved my problem by the following:

  copy MailPartViewers.SOGo.tar from your pc to /usr/lib64/GNUstep/SOGo/

  cd /usr/lib64/GNUstep/SOGo/

  mv MailPartViewers.SOGo MailPartViewers.SOGo.backup

  tar -xf MailPartViewers.SOGo.tar

  systemctl restart sogod

  systemctl restart memcached

I meant for you to try changing a few lines and recompile just to see if it will work.

To make this work you make the changes and compile SOGo, once SOGo has compiled, you just install that version over your current install (Make backups first). If this is a LIVE/Production server consider a cheap VPS just to test the changes, and avoid messing up your production setup.

You wrote you use CentOS so i would install a clone of the server on VPS or what you got available unless you are really confident.

How ever i do think this is the issue, and like Ludovic wrote in this message you need to create a bug report with a ZIP file containing sample messages (Sent from Outlook, Yahoo etc.).

Creating a bug report is the only way this will be tested and validated by SOGo developers, and in the end hopefully a fix makes it into SOGo for release.
