	Oh dear...  In the next version (2.99.21) the  smtpserver
	can be ordered to be "gullible" (as opposite to "skeptical")
	by means of "-g" -switch.

	It makes "HELO" processing gullible (and "HELO" too)
	just for your needs..

	... but I have one difficult bug to hunt in the scheduler-new
	before that -- it appears only (?) at SPARCs, and not at
	OSF/1 AXP :-(  ("unhappy" because on OSF/1 AXP I have a good
	memory debugger, one which is as good as Purify on SPARC.. on
	which I don't have it..)
