Something I did not make clear in my first posting is that the defintion
of SMTP says that each command is terminated by a CR LF (or CR NL if you
prefer). Anyone who sends text terminated by only LF is *wrong*. However,
enough Berkeley-derived systems (Wollongong VMS is descended from Berkeley
4.1C) do so that most robust SMTP servers accept either. If TWG has retained
the, it may even be possible to re-configure it (and it may be
local mis-configuration in the first place).
