I just wanted to inform users of Ximian Evolution 2.0
software that there exists a way to temporarily DoS the local
application and/or machine by attaching an absurd amount of

It seems to me that it would take an attacker more time to create this
remote DoS than it would cause the victim in lost time. IMHO Outlook Express
would be a much less time consuming vector.

What's more, you deserve to be hacked.
