Thanks Tony.

I have a hard time believing that Microsoft will intentionally and by new design violate SMTP 2821 and a key conceptual email transaction operations.

I would suggest/ask Adam (OP) to produce a VISTA SMTP client session log or collect one at the EXIM server to see the full conversation. But it sounds this is something beyond normal 2821 operations.

I have Windows Server 2008 Beta (AKA Longhorn, AKA Vista) on a multi-boot. Maybe I will try it later to see what its client does.

Just consider the repercussions of such a action. If this is true, I for one, will definitely contact Microsoft Exchange engineering management pronto.
