MS POP3 Connector's Fatal Exception

Hi,

We have a customer's server (Win 2000 SBS, SP 4) which has been
experiencing a fatal exception in the POP3 Connector.  We have succesfully
removed and re-install by following
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/319314/ - this had cured the
installation for about 4 hours only though and the Fatal Exceptions are
back again.  Please find below a portion of the VMIMB.TXT pertinent to the
present issue.  If I read correctly, there are three exceptions in the
file, but the exception-reporting process itself has failed on the first
two times.

Any pointers welcome.

Hehe, thanks Vahik.  You read my mind on the MS providing for free bit. :)

I've figured out this one for myself in the end:  there existed an e-mail which was malformed having the following line (I've replaced the comma-seperated e-mail addresses with <email addresses removed>).

From: "pale\r\nContent-Type: multipart/alternative; \n              boundary=aea5f692cf2c8b8c636e3a68eb0f6d37\nX-Mailer: Gnus v5.7/Emacs 20.7\nSubject: recognize three types\nto: <email addresses removed>,\n    <email addresses removed>\n    <email addresses removed>\n\nThis is a multi-part message in MIME format.\n\n--aea5f692cf2c8b8c636e3a68eb0f6d37\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: base64\nContent-Type: text/plain\n\ncmVjb2duaXplcyB0aGUgZm9sbG93aW5nIGNhdGVnb3JpZXMgcmVzaCBoYW0gaXMgYW4gdW5jdXJl\nZCBoaW5kIGxlZyBvZiBwb3Jr\n\n--aea5f692cf2c8b8c636e3a68eb0f6d37--\n.\n" <>

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.
