Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix that contains these files may also contain additional files.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.This problem was corrected in BizTalk Server 2004 Service Pack 1.
The new context property to specify customized headers is the UserHttpHeaders property. The value of the UserHttpHeaders property must have the following format:
Header1: value\r\nHeader2: value\r\n
Note Put a colon (":") and a SPACE character (" ") between the header and the value. An empty header will cause the entry to be filtered out. An empty value is okay.

You can modify the following five standard HTTP headers by using the UserHttpHeaders property:
  • Accept
  • Referrer
  • Expect
  • If-Modified-Since
  • User-Agent
