    I have tried sending a message to a friend who, up until now has had no problem receiving. The message I am sending has no attachments. But this message has come back several times with the message:

    This message has been rejected because it has
    an overlength date field which can be used
    to subvert Microsoft mail programs
    The following URL has further information
    http://www.securityfocus.com/frames/?content=/templates/article.html?id=61

    but when I go to that hyperlink it is a page saying that the item 'might' have been removed.

    Incidentally I have an uo to date virus checker running and have been able to send and receive emails to others since the first bounce of this email

    Questions:
    1. Is this a genuine response or some sort of problem at receivers end?
    2. If genuine can someone explain what I might need to do, if anything can be done, at my end to get the message through. I have already tried maing the subject line smaller but that made no difference.
