First I've heard of it so it makes me think it is most likely a bug in
Outlook Express.  Outlook is quite buggy as evidenced by BUGTRAQ and
similar mailing lists, so I would recommend that you try upgrading your
Outlook to the latest Microsoft update first and see if that fixes the

We have a pending imap package update which will be released very shortly
also and if it is a bug in imap/pop3, it may be fixed, but I wouldn't know
without a specific reproduceable test case.

Does it happen if you use Netscape or Eudora or some other client?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-19 17:22:50 EDT
Without feedback or other datapoints, I cannot do anything if there is
an actual bug in the imap package.  We just released an imap errata.
If that solves your problem, please close this bug report as resolved ERRATA.
If not please provide more information.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-24 04:21:01 EDT
Please try the latest errata update (currently imap-2000c-1.6.0)
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-09-19 23:42:24 EDT
Closing because this is extremely old.
