It is the winmail.dat attachment that is causing it to fail.
Prevent Winmail.dat Attachments from Being Sent in Outlook

To prevent Outlook from attaching winmail.dat when you send an email:

  • Click File in Outlook.
  • Select Options.
  • Go to the Mail category.
  • Make sure HTML or Plain Text is selected for Compose messages in this format: underCompose messages.
  • Now make sure Convert to HTML format or Convert to Plain Text format is selected for When sending messages in Rich Text format to Internet recipients: under Message format.
  • Click OK.
