From Bugzilla Helper:

My Mozilla mail crashes when I receive an e-mail from a person who sends me a
mail from StarOffice 5.2 using SPARC.

I have two examples of mail that will crash my client. I have Mozilla running on
SuSE Linux 7.1 as well, it also crashes that client. Outlook seems to see the
mail with no problems. I have also tried Netscape 6.2.1 on Windows, that also
has the problem. 

I am subscribed to the OpenOffice discuss list and there are two users working
for Sun in Germany that always cause my client to crash. I have not had this
problem with any other mails, it just seems to be StarOffice 5.2 client on SPARC.

X-Mailer: Mozilla/3.0 (compatible; StarOffice/5.2;Linux or Solaris SPARC) 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get someone running StarOffice 5.2 on SPARC to send you an e-mail

Actual Results:  Mozilla mail crashes

Expected Results:  Mozilla mail should accept the mail

I have the mail on my server, if anyone wants it I can send it to them.

I now have RC1 and Mozilla now does not crash, but when I receive an email from
this Solaris/StarOffice 5.2 client I do not get the email along with several
others that happen to be amongst the mails waiting for me on the server. 

The server does not deliver the failed messages to /tmp instead it leaves them
in my mailbox in /var/mail

It should be noted that this happens on my Linux machine as well
