      Description

      Hi,

      When I want to check a mail server with service="SMTP" OpenNMS keeps telling me that the service is down "Did not receive expected response within timeout timeout". I traced the problem and saw, that OpenNMS stop the communication after the first answer of the SMTP server.

      On my server the first answer ist "220-ESMTP ..." and a CR.
      After 3 seconds postfix continues with a "220 ESMTP ..." and CRLF.

      According to the RFC clients have to wait until the CRLF is sent. OpenNMS does not wait. So it sees the wrong banner.

      I have to reconfigure my postfix to make an exeption for my opennms server and to deliver the correct banner from the start.

      I would be nice, if the problem could be fixed within OpenNMS.

      Michael.
