   Yes, I agree.  Without knowledge of the qmail source, I have no
   idea how it does the smtp command inputs, and what e.g. system
   library problems might greep to break otherwise working program.

   One of the problems is that given installation (or all Qmails?)
   does in no way tell thru SMTP what version it is running precisely.
   .. or that it runs Qmail at all ...

   This happens when sending client is DEC Tru64 and Linux 2.2.6-ac1.
   and 2.2.1 ...  I don't think the problem is at sender's TCP stack.
