IMHO, this is not a good idea: RFC 1738 (URL) 3.1 (common internet
scheme syntax) and RFC 2396 (URI) 3.2.2 (server-based naming authority)
describe this as a credential field and the "logical reflex" of URL
composers is to give such info here.

Since there is no standard SMTP URL, I would rather use its first path
component specify the client domain, as it is unused by now...
