  • Zetafax 2012 and 2014 SMTP Servers

Symptom

If a user sends a fax from their email client, and Zetafax is using the Zetafax SMTP Server as the email connector, and an attachment with non-ASCII characters (often found in e.g. the Norwegian language), or if a file with a long filename (over 100 characters) is attached, the Zetafax SMTP Server will crash.

Cause

Resolution

Update - An update is available here to address this issue. This is an update to the Zetafax SMTP Server.
