Hi Frank,
Thanks for you comments.

(I've skipped the DIGEST-MD5 related comments in this reply.)

2554 says that the auth param is an <addr-spec>, but you
changed it to <mailbox>.  Please stick to <addr-spec>,
it's a huge difference.

RFC 2822 <addr-spec> allows for CFWS around different separating characters and other horrible things. I consider this to be a bug and I don't believe people have actually used this syntax for the AUTH parameter.


There's no normative or otherwise reference to RFC 2195
or 2195bis.


I miss a discussion of ESMTPA etc., and a
corresponding normative reference (RFC 3848).

I like the idea, but I need to think about the exact text and the best place to insert it.
