From personal experience - the mail server we publish *used* to treat
either LF or CRLF as a line ending. That stopped over 20 years ago
I think that's the key observation. Back in ye olden days there might
have been real mail systems that send bare LF but I haven't seen one
in a long time.
I also agree with the observation that defects in the SMTP protocol
are a very reliable indicator that you're talking to spamware. That's
why after all these years greylisting is still fairly effective. About
40% of the hosts that I greylist never retry.
