Regarding a client's use of an extension not actually advertised in the EHLO -
I was under the impression that was a no-no, and I went to cite chapter and
verse to a user, and found in 126.96.36.199 RCPT:
If service extensions were negotiated, the RCPT command may also
carry parameters associated with a particular service extension
offered by the server. The client MUST NOT transmit parameters other
than those associated with a service extension offered by the server
in its EHLO response.
There's similar prohibitions about 8BITMIME (in 2.1.3) and lines (in 2.3.7).
But nowhere did I find a general "Thou shalt not send anything outside the
spec unless negotiated via EHLO or similar".... Am I blind, or does it not
have that anyplace?
