It's not all that uncommon for people to report problems which are fixed 
in the real current version, because the version they thought was 
current wasn't.  Also someone may come across this message on the 
mailing list archive in a year's time.

The nearest matching current bug ticket I can find is:

There appears to be a problem with upper case letters in email addresses:

That's the only MSN Avatar related problem I can find.

You didn't say that before.  How were we expected to guess.

If you don't know what a transparent proxy is, and you are using a 
consumer ISP, it is more than likely that you do have one.  They are web 
proxies that are inserted by the ISP without being configured in the 
browser.  They are often not as transparent as the name implies.  Your 
ISP may have auto-configured explicit ones, as well.

ISPs often impose firewalls, sometimes simply to stop you doing things 
for which they can charge more.  However you might have been trying to 
access from your office, or school, which almost certainly would have a 
firewall, and there is a very good chance they would block MSN file 
transfers for policy reasons (viruses and copyright violations).

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
