You're welcome, and thank you.

It's also given me an opportunity to explore some of the actual requirements 
with Glenn. Which is good.

I've now learned it is legal to refuse them if they're syntactically invalid, 
because such a HELO would cause your server to violate format requirements for 
Received: headers.

The rest, we're still exploring. It will be interesting to see where we end up.
