So the one question I did have was the response code from the server. As shown, the server issued 550. It was something:

   [TLS established]
   C: MAIL FROM <xxxx>
   S: 550 EHLO/HELO required.

Shouldn't the server response be 503 (Bad Sequence of commands)?

That would be a 503 as the SMTP session is reset to the initial state upon completion of the TLS handshake.

If so, should this be stated in the revised text?

This is about SMTP.
