Abstract: It is shown that the Szeg\H{o} projection $S$ of a smoothly bounded domain $\Omega $, not necessarily pseudoconvex, satisfies local regularity estimates at certain boundary points, provided that condition $R$ holds for $\Omega $. It is also shown that any biholomorphic mapping $f:\Omega \rightarrow D$ between smoothly bounded domains extends smoothly near such points, provided that a weak regularity assumption holds for $D$.
