The '-request' processing processes the Subject: and the first
mm_cfg.DEFAULT_MAIL_COMMANDS_MAX_LINES (default value = 25) lines of
the body. If the subject is not a valid command, it is ignored. After
that, the first line which is not a vaild command stops the process.

So the short answer is it doesn't matter.

send the command


to the -request address for documentation of the available commands.
