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 sendmail.cf, it may even be possible to re-configure it (and it may be
local mis-configuration in the first place).
