@futzle Ha! You're not wrong! Although there was a time I could SMTP using a telnet client, a fairly useless party trick, but handy for debugging Postfix.

@futzle Simple Network Management Protocol!
@futzle Oh the PROTOCOL for SMTP is simple. It's the implementation of the servers that provide that protocol that sucks. *cough*sendmail*cough*
@dadegroot I would agree if it was the Simplistic Mail Transfer Protocol. Small arbitrary line length limits. Unspecified behaviour WRT non-ASCII encodings. No standard port number for submission. I have Opinions about SMTP. Also about sendmail.
@futzle As an ex-firewall engineer, any protocol I can telnet to its known port and initiate commands myself, is usually ok by me.
* of course as a user of said systems, in the modern world, this is of course "very bad".
@dadegroot You speak truth.
@valhalla Oh snap!
