Re: rfc2821bis-01 Issue 14 Continuation of 222 greeting and Issue 15 syntax for multiline replies

I've also seen multi-line greetings from various servers for several
years now.

I think the trend to use multi-line greeting was begun as an anti-zombie
tactic, and the valid clients were quickly fixed.

There are a number of servers that have a multi-line greeting by default.
I've been running my server for years now with a multi-line greeting and
observed no interop problems (3M messages per week).
