Section 4.3.1 says:

4.3.1. Mail Submission Agent (MSA)


   A Mail Submission Agent (MSA) accepts the message submitted by the
   aMUA and enforces the policies of the hosting ADMD and the
   requirements of Internet standards.

It should say:

4.3.1. Message Submission Agent (MSA)


   A Message Submission Agent (MSA) accepts the message submitted by the
   aMUA and enforces the policies of the hosting ADMD and the
   requirements of Internet standards.

Notes:

The document tends to use "Message" rather than "Mail". However, in the case of the MSA, it uses "Mail" more than "Message".

The document probably needs a pass to ensure consistent use of both terms throughout.
