2821 DATA timeouts

2002-08-21 06:41:10


RFC2821 states in section that while the SMTP client is sending the messag body, it SHOULD accept up to a three-minute delay between each time it can send data.

With 1500-byte packets, that implies that an SMTP client SHOULD be happy with speeds as low as eight bytes per second (1500 bytes per three minutes), which strikes me as being a little on the low side... is that limit intentionally that low?
