RE: [NTISP] Post.Office / Outlook Express issues

As a workaround for the Outlook Express bug, which occurs when Outlook
Express encounters a message which contains a line with only a single
period ".", you may wish to force Post.Office to modify the body of the
message to eliminate the occurence of this character string.

Note: The policy of Post.Office is to NEVER modify the body of a message.
If you choose to implement this workaround, you are forcing Post.Office to
modify message bodies. This modification could potentially cause corruption
of message attachments.

This will only work with Post.Office 3.5.3.

The workaround is as follows:

1. Open regedt32

2. Go to

3. AddValue - Value Name: UseSingleDotRepl
Data: yes
(In the Multi-String Editor window, type the word "yes" (without quotes).)

4. Stop and Restart the Post.Office MTA service
