Check it out.  A plain text message using your standard non M$ friendly
reply string can cause a remote failure of their scanning software.  For
completeness sake, it also had a link to a kernel traffic article (the
one where Andre Hedrick describes just exactly how bad WD hard drives
can screw with your system).  Anybody mess with this NAV scanner?
How bad is a Scan Engine Failure?  Did it choke on the mutt reply string
or on the URL (the URL page extension was .epl#2)

Do I feel bad?  Guess...
