The patch certainly adds more intelligence in the mail parser per protocol (adding more specific states & error codes) and seems valid even with the latest nginx mainline.

Mail parsing code a bit changed since 0.5.37, so this is more like 
an argument against.

In any case, it's not clear what the patch tries to achieve.  It's 
highly unlikely that it will be considered, see
