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

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?
As a follow to my last response. Our settings was OFF by default with
a template display. When AOL began to do it, our next update had it
on by default.
Keep in mind it is against the law (in the US) to abuse a computer.
AOL really didn't do it because they knew their are broken clients out
there. It was required by US federal law and I recall it was added
after that big AOL lawsuit they won against a spammer a few years
back. It as the equivalent as required by the US EPCA for online host
systems to provide/show the TOS on their system.
So to badly paraphrase an old GM saying:
"Whats good for AOL, is good for Email!"
