The first command in the SMTP session:
The first command in the ESMTP session:
RFC 821 RFC 1869
SMTP ‘MAIL FROM’ and “RCPT TO’ allows size only of 512 characters including <CRLF>. ESMTP ‘MAIL FROM’ and “RCPT TO’ allow a size greater than 512 characters.
SMTP alone cannot be extended with new commands. ESMTP is a framework that enhances the capability to extend existing SMTP commands

If you are aware of any improvements to the above differences or want to add to the above list then please post your comments below.
