Re: [ietf-smtp] Draft for compressing SMTP streams

2016-08-17 02:32:59
FWIW I wrote 4790, which is fairly widely implemented, and so far noone has suggested adding anything beyond Deflate for that, so I guess that SMTP implementers will be happy with similar simplicity.

Or perhaps not want compression at all. SMTP has different problems than IMAP, which I think simple compression will not fix: Submit sees a single message per connection, plain SMTP sees mostly spam. Why implement compression, then?
