Trying to send accented characters using OpenBSD's (v5.9) email server I get
a "501 5.1.3: Recipient address syntax error" because the local part of the
address has an "é" ("e" with an acute accent) in the name. Does OpenSMTPD
support these characters? How can I enable this on my server?

At the EHLO prompt I get:
250-server_name.example.com Hello test.me [127.0.0.1], pleased to meet you
250-8BITMIME
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-SIZE 36700160
250-DSN
250 HELP

I think I should see a "SMTPUTF8" extension in this list. Is that correct?

smtpd doesn't support SMTPUTF8 yet, correct.
