 An SMTP server MAY verify that the domain name parameter in the EHLO
 command actually corresponds to the IP address of the client. If this
 verification process is not performed, or if this process does not
 complete successfully, the server SHOULD limit use of the identifier
 to logging purposes only. If the verification process completes
 without error (either in the positive or negative), the identifier
 MAY be used for other purposes, as the server operator sees fit.
