Hi Gonzalo,

What if the response from SMTP server is multi-line? For example, SMTP
from IIS 6.0 returns multi-line response on EHLO command.

You're reading the response from the server *line* by line. So I would
read, say, 4KB at a time and search for a \r\n$ or \n$ or \r$ ($ being
the end of line). You can safely read up to that without blocking
forever unless the server is misbehaving.

If the line does not fit in that byte [], you can use a MemoryStream to
buffer the input and keep reading until an EOL.
