[ietf-smtp] Draft: SMTP Extension for Longer Email Address

2019-12-04 17:41:04
Hey all,

This is my first internet draft I'm sharing here. So I hope you all will
bear with me on this.

I didn't share my initial draft
here. But, Dr. Klensin had given me feedback for that draft off-list. Turns
out I was listing outdated references in the normative references section
among other things.

I have version 1
now. It focuses only on the SMTP extension.

Here is the abstract.



   This memo defines an SMTP extension with keyword "EAML" whereby an
   SMTP server can declare that it is capable of handling longer email
   addresses without any local-part or domain-part restriction set by
   RFC 5321.

   EAML stands for "Email Address Maximum Length".


This is how it works.

                  S: 220 ESMTP Ready
                  C: EHLO
                  S: 250-EXPN
                  *S: 250-EAML 500*
                  S: 250-PIPELINING
                  S: 250 HELP

The parameter omitted EAML keyword says:

                  [*] No local-part limitation.
                  [*] No domain-part limitation.
                  [*] 254 maximum characters


Any kind of feedback will be really helpful.
