I sent them a long nasty E-Mail just today on this very subject. I
expect to
get the same response we have all gotten "Its a Microsoft problem".
I suggest someone crank out one of there lists for this subject so we
can get
it off this one. If we stick together and make a big enough stink,
when it looks like we may get some media coverage I'll bet there will
be a
fix for it.

My first request to them was in July of 98..

In December of 98 they said they had found the problem and that
Outlook Express would stop receiving an Email that had a single "." on
a line... they supplied me a patch.. and it may have helped on a few
messages.. but it did not stop the problem.

While I do believe that OE has a problem.. I also feel that
Post.Office has a problem.. to the point that I have been considering
some sort of law suit against them.. but I have not taken my software
license agreement to an attorney to see if we could do that..

What may be better is a class action suit with all the ISPs joining

I went through this whole thing with them last August. I sent them a
list of 5 or 10 other ISPs having the same problem. No matter what,
they want to blame MS. We even have the same problem (less often) with
Netscape! If the problem is fixed in the newer release they need to
upgrade us for free. This has been an ongoing problem for us since
reaching 1000 mailboxes and now with over 1500 it's even worse. I say
we form a organized list of ISPs with this problem and send this
information higher than tech support or sales.
