    Counter To The Reply To...

    We were playing around with our systems the other day and we wanted to test out our mail server and we cam to a surprise finding. We randomly sent a couple e-mails to our accounts holding the maximum number of |'s it would allow. The e-mail came to about 128K, however no one could reply back to it. It would go through and they could view it, but if they hit Reply - Reply All - Forward it would come back with a resource warning. Is this a problem based on the limitation of ram on these systems or will this be the case on all systems?

    Hi ITG,

    Could you send me one via this site?.............I would be most glad to check it out.

    You know that I have a variety of kits, so I can test with different OSes and hardware specs?

    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    it does not have the same effect.

    example

    To: User@ISP.com
    Subject: Testing
    Body: |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| (repeated until no space left for text)

    every time we try this the message is 128KB.
