I tried this and I got no error :-)).

I will post this on the extremail ML and see what the author has to say about it.

I don't know how many non-compliant servers there exist. Maybe this is a good idea anyway.

That's what I don't understand too. Are all those clients implemented with very relaxed checks?

Helped a lot. Thanks! I'll let you know what the extremail author says. Robert
