Re: LCG.COM's address rewrites..

I have been busy elsewere -- figuring how we can run one of the
most popular Internet FTP servers with the least-powerfull machine
still one more month...  (and many other things)

	I am glad you found a way to kludge that MSMAIL bogon

	On  crossbar.cf there is a definition which I have changed to be
			# tmp="@$hostname:$tmp"  # <-- that creates RFC-822
						 #     source-routing, AVOID!
	to get rid of the generated source-route.

	I THINK it comes from the original letter.  Proof via
	$MAILSHARE/postman/ -directory by picking a copy of the original
	email.   Its content is re-written, but the header was there
	to begin with.

	I haven't done it -- it should not be difficult, though.

> 	  2) msmail.aec.ca	-> aec.ca	    (changed via a table lookup)

	"Easy" by having local host to use "aec.ca" name, and
	adding "msmail.aec.ca" into  $MAILSHARE/db/localnames

	Alternate is a plan I have in mind where "localnames" becomes
	a mapping of for example:
		hidden.dept.site.top  -> dept.site.top
		hidden2.dep2.site.top -> dept2.site.top
	while still keeping the email local.

	Ah the SNAFU..	  The FullNameMap database works for
	format entries.  See   rrouter.cf  for usage of   $(fullnamemap ...)
	It is used ONLY when there is a dot in the local-part address.

	No idea.  Why the address is there twice ?
	Is it in the original arrived spool-file ?

	Cosmetic bug on Zmailer 2.9X -- I will try to fix it.
