The CONFIRM command is used to confirm for MAILSERV the execution of a command from a previous message.
That is, for security your system administrators might have configured MAILSERV to require confirmation of certain commands. If you receive a message from MAILSERV saying that you need to send a

Note that you should send a new message back to MAILSERV containing the required CONFIRM command, rather than simply resending or bouncing MAILSERV's own message back to MAILSERV (to ensure that you hear about any errors in processing your CONFIRM command).
Note that if you receive a message from MAILSERV talking about confirming a command that you did not send yourself, then that might mean that someone is attempting masquerade as you in e-mail and you might want to take this up with your system administrators.
