CIAC has since updated the bulletin, but in the meantime some ISPs have added Pegasus to their anti-spam filters. Pegasus Mail for Windows v2.55 - posted last week at http://risc.ua.edu./pegasus - gets around the problem of mistaken blocking by not identifying Pegasus as the creator in its e-mail header.
"To say that I am angry and upset that it should be necessary for me to make this release is a terrific understatement," David Harris, the program's author, said in a statement to Pegasus users. "Especially since I am currently the only major e-mail developer with a strong anti-spam stance. It seems preposterous and ironic to me that I alone seem to have been singled out in this way."Reuse content
