Subject: Windows Eudora drops connection

I've still got a legacy SIMS install running, last beta. last problem I had with it was literally years ago.

I have a new client running Eudora Windows 7.01, and she can send and receive e-mails just fine. But if she tries to send an attachment, even a small one, SIMS reports an Abort received, reason=54. On her end, Eudora reports "error writing to network. Cause: connection reset by remote side (10054)." Then, ever after, she can send no e-mails at all, with or without attachments. POP still works.

Looking at the logs, all looks normal until the Abort. There is only 3 sec from the opening connection to the abort, so this is not about time-outs I would think. If I duplicate her account on an identical Windows Eudora setup locally here, it all works fine, indicating that whatever is happening is a result of her coming in from Texas (to me in NC) from the sbcglobal network (her ISP) to my tiem warner network.

I doubt there is a real solution here - just wondering if anyone has run across this with Eudora for Windows... I'm not sure I've ever run a Windows Eudora client with SIMS. Log snippet included below.
