Damn..busy ;)

Ok, behaviour I see, is that after a succesfull smtp connection (ehlo,
mail from, rcpt to, data, quit) the mail is sent to the errorchannel with

19990412183904 /opt/zmailer/bin/ta/smtp: 77288/89//error2 smtp; 500
(configuration inconsistency. MX usage forbidden, no address in the DNS:

The address that is not in the DNS is the part after @ in the rcpt to
command. It happens always, unless the domain after @ is a hostname and
accepts mail.

Switching back to works, but it isn't handy that gcc 2.8.0 doesn't
do it right....Now how to fix that....

Doesn't make any difference.
