The 8 bit problem was recently pointed out to me. Given that I only send
standard-compliant mail, I've never seen the problem :-). (SMTP only allows
ASCII 7 bit characters.) I've got a patch for this.
I can't reproduce the "no HELO" problem. Mail works fine for me with just
MAIL FROM/RCPT TO/DATA. Does Netscape actually support SMTP? I thought it
only supported POP3..
