Re: [ietf-smtp] Valid RFC5322 address

Many thanks.   Is "cketti" the name you want in the
acknowledgments?  Otherwise, please supply a name (send to me
directly if you prefer).  

This will be in rfc5321bis-04 when it is posted (although that
still probably won't be until after we have a WG).

Stay safe and well,

The first paragraph of Section 4.1.2 of RFC 5321 (and

     "Terminals not defined in this document, such as ALPHA,
     DIGIT, SP, CR, LF, CRLF, are as defined in the "core"
     syntax in Appendix B of RFC 5234 [5] or in the message
     format syntax in RFC 5322 [11]."

So you can't say "no reference..."   However, it has been
clear to me for some time that turning that statement into a
specific list of productions defined in 5334 (not "such as"
handwaving) and a separate list of productions defined in
5322 and then indexing both would be a considerable
improvement.   If someone wants to do the work of preparing
those lists, I'd be happy to fold them into 5321bis and
provide an acknowledgment.

From RFC 5234:
- SP

From RFC 5322:
- atext

CR and LF are not used in ABNF rules.
