Mike, you are missing some rather basic differences.
SMTP defines the construct of 'client' explicitly. SSP does not.
In addition, SMTP is a real-time exchange protocol and SSP is not. For that
matter, SSP is a very unusual style of "protocol" and so the client-server
construct does not have obvious application. I don't mean it can't be applied
but, as I said, the application isn't obvious.
In any event, I'm still not seeing how any of this relates to the original
reference to an MUA.
