ETRN is a way for a machine to hold mail for another domain whose mail
server(s) are behind transient connections. When the mail server for
said domain comes up, it connects to the server holding its mail and
says "ETRN foo.com", and then a standard SMTP conversation begins.
It's not used for individual users to access their mail, just to
start an SMTP session from the destination rather than the source.
