ATypI list scortched by Proprietary Software
The ATypI members list has blown up in an ugly way and many people tried to unsubscribe, because a proprietary software user was spamming the list but accidentally. How did this happen? A list member explained:
I had the same problem a while ago, that could be traced to an MS Outlook Express bug. When you sent mail box is over a certain size, the Outbox fails to place your message there and gets into a loop trying to do so - each time sending a new copy of the mail. The solution is to split up you sent mail- for instance per year.
This is a great example of the total madness of proprietary software. How is it POSSIBLE that this bug can go unfixed?
