Hmm.  I'm certain that QUIT shouldn't require HELO, and I wouldn't expect that NOOP would either.  

I just checked the RFC. The *only* command that requires HELO/EHLO is MAIL (and by implication RCPT, since it in turn requires MAIL).  See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5321#section-4.1.4.

Sorry to keep bouncing this back.  I appreciate the work you are doing.
