Multi-Line Greetings A Certainty?

2010-02-14 22:47:42

Hi all,

I imagine it's more of an implementation robustness issue to support multiline 
greetings given the current text of RFC 5321.  However, Postfix's new 
postscreen daemon, docs , seems to be 
relying on it to do its job.  Also does something else disturbing (in typical 
Postfix experimental fashion) which is to disconnect clients just for not 
liking the initial "Teaser" banner.  According to the STANDARDS section, this 
is RFC 5321-stipulated stuff.  According to my experience, yeah, probably works 
for short enough timeouts, and I've seen plenty multiline greetings in the wild 

I don't like spam either, but does this not strike others as being really quite 
dangerous thinking and uncertain games to be playing?
