No, that's just my debugging style. tcpshow, strace, ltrace, that sort
of thing.  Collect data about what happens, then compare the code
against the log.  Bottom-up debugging.

I'm not terribly skilled in the arts of SMTP, but for a couple of
other protocols I've messed with, tcpdump/tcpshow have been useful
tools.  So I tried.

Sending all this in one packet as soon as the connection was opened
(breaking the rules) to mailhost.temex.fr:

EHLO lupinella.troll.no
MAIL From:<matti.aarnio@sonera.fi> BODY=8BITMIME
RCPT To:<hugues.dugres@temex.fr>
RCPT To:<hugues.dugres@temex.fr>
RCPT To:<hugues.dugres@temex.fr>
RCPT To:<hugues.dugres@temex.fr>

gave me, according to tcpshow, first this reply

452 Requested action not taken, Insufficient storage .

and 0.15 seconds later -another- packet saying

220 mailhost.temex.fr ESMTP.

After that, nothing more.  (If anyone wants to see, I have the
entire connection logged.)

I venture to guess that mailhost.temex.fr has a configuration problem.
