It's somewhat temping to add some sort of "the MXes pointing
at this server can be rolled up" indicator to the limits
specification, but since it's not a limit it doesn't really
fit. If done it needs to be a separate EHLO announcement.
Just a thought, based on little thinking and less information:
Are there any plausible circumstances in which a system might
want to encourage rolling up a few MXs but not very many?
I can’t think of any off the top of my head. I think you’d either want
everything rolled up or nothing. But I’m not handling large incoming volumes,
so there may be.
so, that would turn it into a limit, rather than requiring a
separate announcement keyword. I'm having trouble imagining
such a case, so, if the answer is "no", don't bother with a
detailed explanation. However, because I think there is value
in minimizing the number of announcements, the question seems
I would agree with you here.
