I'm sure most folks here do follow the general idea of the "example."
But wow, my bad, you're technically 100% right. I hope not to repeat it.
It should also be noted that not all SMTP servers will be strict here
since there is a huge history of clients using a space, especially
with legacy clients. Our SMTP server is relaxed here with such
clients. If I recall, I think OE was one of them. Was not going to
reject OE clients on this basis. I will be interested to know how
your server behaved here? Strict or relax?

Since it has been a common source of errors, it is worth noting that
spaces are not permitted on either side of the colon following FROM
in the MAIL command or TO in the RCPT command. The syntax is exactly
as given above.
