Hi all,

Just had a look at draft-daboo-srv-email, all very pleasant.  I think service weights have been discussed already but:

Why does the spec provision for IMAPS and POP3S?  Shouldn't we be seriously discouraging that usage?  Is there some reason to keep them, even if "deprecated"/discouraged?  Right now the only reason I know of is IMAP clients which send out LOGIN complete with password before they can be stopped; for that we have the LOGINDISABLED capability.
