You are confusing the RFC requirement - which concerns error messages 
output by the server intended to be displayed by an *admin* - with the 
error message intended to be displayed to a *user*.

For 554 errors, without extended error codes, there is not a single, 
simple message that works for all server responses.  (If anything, we 
should probably be even MORE general with the response, e.g. "There 
was an error when trying to send the message").

What you are asking for is already provided.  Not only is the error 
message available in SMTP debug logs, but it will be logged to the 
Horde error log (at least as of IMP 7.0).

You absolutely cannot be appending the direct content of SMTP error 
messages to user displayable data.  That is a recipe for disaster.

Michael, it would be nice to show "There was an error when trying to 
send the message".

Accepting as an enhancement, for updating the language of the error 
displayed to be more general,  as suggested by MIchael in his comment.
