If the banner message sent by the smtp server is contained within more than one

using 20031003 I wasn't able to reproduce
please try a more recent build
if the bug is still there please reopen this bug

if you can provide an SMTP server where this is the case then we can reopen,
otherwise it's really really hard to reproduce this bug. it's also more than 6
months ago than this bug was reported.
