RE: [BPQ32] BPQ-Outpost problem
I have it at work to via telnet… Just before lunch tomorrow I can try the same thing I was doing here yesterday and see if it still locks..
I am using telnet, connecting to BPQ telnet server, then to BPQMail (using the command "WSA").
Thanks for the response, John....

I agree it shouldn’t cause a crash. How are you linking Outpost to BPQ? I’ll see if I can recreate the problem and fix it.
Okay, I have uncovered the thing that causes Outpost to crash BPQMail when sending messages
using a Distribution List.
Apparently, when the "list" is very large (in this case 40 addresses) it overfills a buffer and
crashes BPQMail. When this SAME list is divided into 4 "10-address" lists, all works okay.
However, it is not good that ANYTHING can be sent to BPQMail that will cause a crash.
A "disconnect" would be MUCH better.
