IMHO there were two forks in sendmail, one as you say after accepting the
connection and the second in the MAIL FROM stage (I looked at it four
years ago, thus the past tense; I do not know the current situation). The
second fork could be avoided if the client used ESMTP and the ONEX
command. As I said I do not know if it is the same now but IMHO it has not
changed since then.
