smtp-raw.rev was a toy, it does not guarantee deliveries because some
receiving SMTP servers will try a reverse DNS check on it and will spot the
difference. Nowadays with spam and stuff it is even harder to play the MTA

That thing should not be used into production unless you control the
receiving SMTP server and knows how to configure it to allow your traffic
thru (Which will open it to all kinds of nastiness anyway)

CGI/RevServer is the way to go for such communications.
