Matti, a few days ago I posted a question, and it is rather urgent for me.
So far, I made a rude hack to workaround but I'd appreciate very much if
you find a minute and look at it. That is, some our peer insists on
sending "MAIL FROM:" with bangpath in the local part. As far as I can
tell, this is perfectly legal: '!' is a valid character for the local
part of the address. Furthermore, some of the bangpath elements start
with underscore '_' character. As far as I remember, this is pefectly
legal too (remember, this is all local part). But smtpserver does not
allow underscore after the bang, and bang! Session is terminated.
501-5.1.7 For input: <<email@example.com>
501 5.1.7 Path data: After a '!', a non alphanumeric element
Could you either explain why this is the Right Thing or fix it?
The code is around line 960 in smtpserver/rfc821scn.c
