Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040123 Debian/1.6-1.he-1


Client: Mozilla 1.6 on Windows (also reproduceable on linux - other OS's I
havent checked, cause I don't have access to 'em)
Server: Debian Woody with standard exim installation, including SMTP-auth and
tunneled over SSL.
If trying to send an E-Mail, more than a bunch of line long, mozilla complaints:
An error occured while sending mail. The mail server responded p15149772 SMTP
incoming data timeount - closing connection. Please check the message in try again.

This isn't a server problem in my opion, cause KMail and Mozilla 1.5 delevire
even longer E-Mails using the same server without any problems.

Regards. J.Luehr

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use a SMTP Server with SMTP-auth and SSL
2.Compose a Message longer than 170 Lines fully written (I don't know the exact
limit, I send log-files to reproduce it)
3.Try to send it.

Actual Results:  
The error described above occured.

Expected Results:  
The mail should have been send without any problem.

Have no ;)

I've had a similar problem during tha last few days, and now I finally found
out what it was: a routing problem, but the symptoms were similar to yours.
My network interfaces all used an mtu of 1500, but my router dropped such
long packets, because the ppoe line behind could only carry packages up to
Debugging was really annoying, I was able to send messages using telnet (!),
but Mozilla wasn't...
Anyway, could you possibly see a similar problem?
