It would appear that it's a spam-prevention measure.

Sorry about the long URL there, but I that thread was as close as I
could find.  Basically, SBC came in and made some changes that aren't
compatible with various mailers including Mozilla, Eudora, and Emacs
smtpmail...  If I use smtpauth.sbcglobal.net and use AUTH LOGIN, I can
send just fine and it waits for QUIT just like it's supposed to.  

Ultimately, I suspect that other ISPs are going to use the 1msg option
to help stop spammers.  *eyeroll* Not sure how it should be
incorporated...  all I know for sure is that my patch Works For Me.
