How about:


A SMTP command is sent from sender to receiver via the transmission channel.
SMTP commands and, unless altered by a service extension, message data, are transmitted in "lines".

2.3.7.  Lines

Lines consist of zero or more data characters terminated by the sequence ASCII character ...

2.3.8.  Reply

The Reply paragraph (Section 2.3.11) is moved to after the Lines paragraph. Maybe the " Message Content and Mail Data" paragraph may be moved as well so that it follows the "Lines" paragraph.
