An MUA can do better (better coverage, easier deployment) by probing several common setups until it finds one that works. Outlook 2007 already does this (sorry, can't find a more detailed description than <>) and it looks like Thunderbird has something similar in hand. All it requires from the operator is to use common host names for the various servers. So I think this draft does too little too late.

Tony: Would you support a BCP documenting what Outlook does, and recommending that operators add CNAMEs/As/AAAAs for those exact hostnames?

(Honest question, no rhetoric. Can't expect much rhetoric from me anyway, I lost the taste many years ago.)
