[Dovecot] emails getting mangled when dragging from Exchange account to IMAP shared folders

in-log attached.  I don't see any truncation in there, though you can see
that there is the byte sequence 0D090A09 in there, which I think is what is
breaking it (whatever "it" is).
Still not sure if this indicates the mangling happens somewhere on my linux
server, or somewhere upstream in Outlook/Exchange.
God I hate having to deal with Outlook.

Also, to Axel:
I don't have access to any of the raw email source on the Exchange/Outlook
end, which is frustrating, but unavoidable.  If I find the mangling
happening on the Postfix/Dovecot end of things, this is actually good news
to me, since I have full access to that portion of the email trail.
