I'll try and be more helpful… and the original email went by my spam  
filter just fine. Maybe it's yours Reinhard that needs adjustement?

You need to copy the whole log (that chinese in the black box, as you  
call it) and send it to the list, because the only problem indicated  
in this passage is a difficulty to hyphenize a line (in the paragraph  
at lines 37-50). That kind of overfull messages happens regularly, it  
should not stop the compilation of your article.
I am assuming compilation does not occur succesfully, since you're  
asking for help, but really, we can't help more if you do not provide  
us with more information.
