Ok, wow!!!

You better reconsider being more relaxed with that MAIL FROM: strict 
syntax I'm sure you will get hit by other servers

In the past week, 100% of the mail arriving at work with
     MAIL FROM: <...
     RCPT TO: <...
was spam. Good fodder for bayesian analysis.

(Btw, I didn't discover this; der Mouse told me.)

I would have used strict-rfc822 mode in my work production systems,
if it would not reject something like 95% of users who send thru their
ISP master relays...

MS Outlooks do put those extra white-spaces in there blatantly..

At my own private system I use strict syntax processing, and those
who can't send because of it, well..  tough.  However I can't do
that for paying customers  :-(
