My all weekend coding and testing marathon has created some

to test its functioning.  (Manually, please!)

Now it should not allow trivial  <user@elsewere.domain>
relaying, and even be able to stop pretty current list of
spam-source domains.  (proto/policy-builder.sh)

While going thru one recent report about problems when some
user had an idea of using  .forward  entry like this:

It turned out I had syntactic bug (too simple approach) at
'condquote' routine within the router, and that both the
proto/cf/rrouter.cf, and proto/cf/canon.cf  did need some

When you do 'make install' of 2.99.49, you need to do explicite
copy of proto/cf/*.cf into your MAILSHARE/cf/, unless this is
your very first installation.

Also do note that the POSTOFFICE/ structure got a new directory.
