Hmm.. This one you can't configure away.
Of course M$ is now telling people that "Outlook is available
for free" (and all bugs in it are included in the price..)
I have heard that MS Outlook is not the *only* email "client"
with this same problem, and that for some reason a multiline
error reply is prone to blow up various "clients" -- and that
ZMailer appears to be the only server doing them, while RFC 821
clearly specifies them..
You can go into smtpserver/smtpserver.c, function type821err()
and in it remove the code outputing that "501-..." line.
( your 2.99.49p9 is possibly so different at that part, that I
can't give you exact diff. )
I am considering another PARAM option into smtpserver.conf
to disable these multiline error reports -- leaving only the
last of the single-line ones. Care to suggest me a name for
the option ?
