one other option is to make it explicit with different scripts for the
two situations.

Or..  a good use for that "mode" variable, so the script can tell the
circumstance under which it is being executed.

I think this is less likely to be made usable in UI editors than my
suggestion (which just requires special ordering of statements, and as
such doesn't _require_ UI support at all).

Or.. a draft specifying how 'header' et al (anything requiring the
message to be present) should behave if the message isn't yet there.

yes, I think this needs to made explicit somewhere.

Or.. a test that will see if the message is available for examination.
(e.g. via some read-only variable.)

this is just a slight variation of your #1, isn't it?

But really, a problem is that support for RCPT-TO (and other) scripting
probably needs more fleshing out anyway, since RCPT-TO wants to see more
states and more information returned from a script than simply "accept"
or "reject."  To me, this suggests having a separate scripts, or at
least script fragments, for each mode.

what more information?  you want scripts to be able to return 4xx as
well as 2xx and 5xx?
