following table 34-10: The fIsendmailfR program checks its connection cache just before opening up a new connection to a host. If the cache contains an entry for that host, fIsendmailfR sends an s-1SMTP RSETs0 command to the host to make sure the connection is still active. If the s-1SMTP RSETs0 succeeds, the connection is re-used. If the s-1SMTP RSETs0 times out (see (sc#sOPTION_Timeout_rset, the f(CWTimeout.rsetfR option), or fails, or if the host was not in the cache, an new connection is made.
