It was uncertain back in 2004. Not now.
I can't even remember what problems it caused. Around 2005 they had
already been solved.
Which probably coincided when AOL started (probable closer to 2004 if
I recall) to spit out extended welcome lines, thus forcing the issue
with any remaining legit but broken MTAs if they wanted to be able to
co-exist with AOL servers.
But there are still out there and today its all bad guys using low/no
cost poor MTA code or using "i don't care" blasting code. Today, it
around 5-8% of the hits on server. Back in 2003, it as around 15% but
as high as 30% during the holidays!
2003 to current daily stats stored at (HELO column).
