Email content causes PB Messages app to crash

[ Edited ]

One particular email that I had received causes the PlayBook Messages app to shut down. When it was at the top of the message list, it actually prevented the app from starting. Only after I received a newer email was I able to open the app.


I don't have any trouble opening this particular  email on other devices. 


No other email has ever  given this problem, so I believe  there is some specific content that is causing the crash. 


As an experiement, from another device, I tried forwarding email to myself. The forwarded email did not make the Messages app to crash. perhaps the cause is not the content, but something in the message header?



Has anyone else had this problem? 


I think BB should be aware that this vulnerability exists, and could be used against their customers.
