Actually, I had this happen when someone sent a mail from an old Eudora client
(Eudora Lite 3.0.1 if I remember correctly) and (I think it was) Outlook 
from IE4. I deemed it to be a bug in Outlook Express, removed the mail and 
the sender not to send any more mail of that type to the recipient.

The mails had a quite large To:-header; I think that was the problem. This
should not be a problem in Outlook 2000 though..
