Do the FutureQuest SMTP servers support ETRN?

Question:

I would like to know whether you support the ETRN standard and are willing to queue incoming SMTP mail on behalf of my network.

Answer:

FutureQuest's qmail servers do not support ETRN for the following reasons:

1) Security problems
2) Spammers love to hijack ETRN-capable SMTP daemons
3) Inefficient use of bandwidth and storage
4) Inefficient queuing system that can cause backups and/or slow delivery
