[hobbit] Unexpected service response

This makes postfix unhappy.  I have the postmaster alias setup and can
send and receive with the account, but I get:

Service smtp on mail.domain.com is not OK : Unexpected service response

252 Cannot verify user, but will accept for this address

(Going through the mailbox in preparation for the next release ...)

How about this one:

    send "vrfy postmaster\r\nquit\r\n"
    expect "220"
    options banner
    port 25

Works with qmail here ... hopefully it will work with Sendmail also.
