No, it does not.  TIdSMTP expects the server to return a 250 response in
reply to the RCPT TO command, and that is exactly what your conversation is
showing is actually happening.

It does not matter what text appears after the 250 itself.  TIdSMTP does not
use that text to begin with.  The numeric 250 value itself is the only
important thing here.  Everything else is ignored by Indy but is still
stored in case the user code wants to use it.

Fix what exactly?  There is no problem here.  Please clearify.
