Section 3.4.4 says:


It should say:

Add a 4th bullet item to section 3.4.4:

o  If the body is non-empty, but does not end with a CRLF, a CRLF is 
   added.  (For email, this is only possible when using extensions to
   SMTP or non-SMTP transport mechanisms.)


From the October 2008 interop event:

No Trailing CR-LF
* What if body is non-empty, but does not end in CRLF?
* Only possible with BDAT or non-SMTP transport mechanisms
* “simple” (§3.4.3) says to add a CRLF
* “relaxed” (§3.4.4) says nothing
* Consensus is to add a CRLF for Relaxed if
– it was missing and
– the body is not empty
– Errata: Add statement on what to do for Relaxed
