On OSB version, the user has configured a Proxy Service to poll messages from an Outlook POP3 email address. Once it receives an e-mail the Proxy Service will send an XML message to another proxy. The second proxy expects only XML messages. It was observed that when the first proxy sends an XML message to second proxy the XML message is wrapped in MIME Version and --MIME_Boundary and the second proxy is failing as it is not an XML message.

The following error is seen from the second proxy:

"Failure while unmarshalling message: Failed to parse XML text"
