Answer

A remote system issued a MAIL command to GMS containing a source address that is too long. GMS has rejected the command.

In this case session Undefined was processing a connection from the server/client at Undefined when it received the command

  Undefined 

so GMS responded with

  Undefined 

This problem is most likely to be caused by someone who is attacking your system in an attempt to find a weakness. This attack has been identified by GMS and ignored. To find out why this is being done, contact the owner of the IP address Undefined and ask them.

Sending from long email addresses to mail systems is a common method of probing for weaknesses in those servers.
