I am not an SMTP/IMAP/POP/etc expert, unfortunately. Perhaps due to my

considered for OCP _instead of_ SMTP profile.
Certainly worthwhile to consider, although I'm *not* an email expert
to tell whether something like that is feasible.
A few folks expressed interest in having support for SMTP - is SMTP
the only protocol of interest, or is there also a practical need for
IMAP/POP? Does anyone have specific use cases in mind?
Similar to what we did in the first charter, we can make SMTP the
prime goal which we'll have to provide a solution for, but we can
first explore the feasibility of a general "email/MIME" profile (and
maybe include an explicit charter item for such exploration). Making a
rash decision now without spending careful thoughts migth backfire.
