----------------------------------------
Synopsis
----------------------------------------
SurgeMail Mail Server 3.9e (Windows and Unix-based versions) is  
vulnerable to denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. The nature of the crash  
may indicate a buffer overflow problem, but the developers claimed  
otherwise.
The IMAP server abruptly crashes when processing an APPEND message  
with a large parameter.
