Email bounced 'overlength date field'

Have sent email to several friends, there is no attachment, just relatively straight forward item with some borders and a table in the email body copy. In one case the email was bounced back as 'delivery failed' with the message:

This message has been rejected because it has
an overlength date field which can be used
to subvert Microsoft mail programs
The following URL has further information

Have gone to hyperlink which says 'page removed'. Other emails I sent to this friend get through. My questions are:
1. I assume this is a genuine block?
2. Has anyone come across this and do you know what it means?
3. Is there something I can do to get my message through? [I had put a lot of work into it]

Many thanks

Sounds like some sort of anti spam program which is a little too zealous. Have you tried it again to the same user?
