	Yes you can.  In this case the remote end closed the socket after
	local side had written there 25kB data, and it had been mere 6
	seconds since start of the connection establishment to the remote
	server (or, to confuse a bit, 6 seconds since first activity on
	existing dormant socket -- MAIL FROM:<..> command very likely.)

	Of course we could consider rewriting these strings a bit.
	Right now they are quite cryptic..
