When it comes to SMTP and a few of the other recently added protocols (like
IMAP and POP3), you really need to dive into the code for some of the details
and we GREATLY appreciate if you help us clarify these details in the docs

The hostname is taken from the path part, but if you don't specify a path in
the URL then libcurl will attempt to get the host name from your system (or
use "localhost"). Note that systems often don't know the "proper" local host
name to show to the remote host so it is likely that you need to help libcurl
with that anyway.
