This article describes issues you may encounter when using the Internet Mail service for Microsoft Outlook 97 with various Internet Service Providers.


SMTP Submissions Not Working With IBM.NET

If you send a message that contains a line with only a period, all text below that line is lost. This problem is with IBM.NET's SMTP server. This problem occurs using Outlook, Outlook Express, Internet Mail and News, Netscape Communicator, and Eudora. If you use Telnet to send RFC-821 compliant text directly to the IBM.NET SMTP server, the server fails to process the text correctly.

Cannot Download Mail from USA.NET

You may not be able to download Internet mail from USA.NET. The USA.NET server used a Line Feed (LF) character rather than a Carriage Return Line Feed (CRLF) character to terminate message lines. The POP server specification states that lines are terminated with CRLF characters. This problem has been corrected.

Cannot Download Mail From WIN.NET

You may not be able to download Internet mail from WIN.NET. This problem is based on customer reports. This problem has been corrected. The third-party products discussed here are manufactured by vendors independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.
