  • Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2


On a Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2-based device, the PMail e-mail application (Pmail.exe) cannot receive some e-mail messages. Additionally, Pmail.exe may fail and then close. When you experience this problem, you may receive the following error message:

Critical failure has occurred.
To preserve the integrity of your data, Inbox will exit when you tap


This problem occurs because Pmail.exe tries to parse an e-mail message and the e-mail message contains a second instance of a double-header field that is extended to a second line.
