Smtpd can't handle (at least not for me :) swedish characters in
headers, something that is pretty common here in Sweden. Something to do
with isprint, which return zero on the 8-bit iso chars (which made me
pretty surprised, so it might be my fault somehow).
Furthermore it won't accept mail without receiving a HELO, which makes it
fairly unusable with the newest netscape (Communicator) which don't seem
to send it (when using smtpd as SMTP Gateway for NS).
This is of course just my humble experiences; YMPV ('..probably varies' :)
- smapd have been working just fine all the time, although without snappy
messages a la "pleased beyond bladder control".
