I expected the SMTP list to be flooded with 2821bis WG charter
debates, but in reality nothing happens.
the name is confusing and the new name isn't very helpful either.
Let's call it something like "Delayed-RCPT-Status" (DRS) or
Maybe the complete technique could be simplified:
After the server offers "TBD" the client can accept it as "TBD"
keyword of MAIL FROM. Then it sends the DATA first, afterwards
it sends RCPT TO and gets selective (per mailbox) responses as
usual, taking the known DATA into account.
The mail is selectively accepted with a 2xx for an RCPT TO. Any
command that's not RCPT TO (like MAIL FROM or QUIT) terminates
the transmission of this mail.
Could "DATA-first mail" (DF) work ?
