RE: Outlook and Qmail
FWIW, Outlook fails the POP connection to my ISP, without proceeding to
other messages, on all messages that are header-only with no payload,
i.e., finish with a single blank line only. I don't know if these are
'valid' messages according to SMTP, but in any case I can see them
through the web interface, and after I delete them through the web
interface, Outlook is unblocked and able to download other messages. I
have always imagined them to be spam attempts gone bad, shrugged my
shoulders, and accepted their existence. They occur rarely, roughly one
in 5000 messages.

Do me a quick favor and when it happens, grep the message for three +++
signs together... if he's on a dialup modem, I have seen 3 plusses cause
the modem to go into the 'guard' and 'hang' the email program.
A long shot, but something worth looking into.
