Hi Mark-san,

I got a reply from the customer, but it was not possbile for the customer
to provide the whole digest.mbox to us due to their policy.  However,
sevral parts of the error log and digest.mbox's content have been provided.
As for the error messages, please see the attachment.  And as for the
digest.mbox which might be the problematic one, I see lots of messages look
like below.

 ESC$B%&%$%k%9$,8+$D$+$j$^$7$?ESC(B (ESC$B4m81ESC(B)
 A32Z02V (A32G29V)(MG740762)
 (UPS Delivery Problem>>inv.zip>>inv.exe)

I know that I got just a few information to investigate, but can you be
able to guess what the cause of this is?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,
