INTRODUCTION

This article describes the SharePoint Portal Server 2003 issue that is fixed in the SharePoint Portal Server 2003 post-Service Pack 1 hotfix package that is dated February 28, 2005.

Issue that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • SharePoint Portal Server 2003 may load an incorrect IFilter if you use a custom protocol handler

    Consider the following scenario. You use a custom protocol handler in your SharePoint Portal Server 2003 environment. In this scenario, SharePoint Portal Server 2003 uses the file name extension instead of the MIME type of a file to determine the IFilter to load. This condition may cause SharePoint Portal Server 2003 to load an incorrect IFilter.
