	File  $MAILSHARE/db/localnames  lists (sort(1) ordered)  all
	valid names for the host -- all the names it can accept as its own.

	/etc/mail.conf  has usually the local presented names,
	that is the name the machine uses for itself:

		#  Zmailer host dependent information
		# Where am I?
		# Who am I?
		# What do I tell people?
		# World hack!
		# rrouter.cf uses these..

		: ${UUCPACTION:="smtp mail.eunet.fi"}

	You mean "demon.net" should accept it as its own, or accept
	it for inbound relaying ?  If the latter, you can do it with
	file (again sort(1) ordered), example:
		alfard			uucp!alfard
		alfard.cc.utu.fi	uucp!alfard
		alfard.utu.fi		uucp!alfard

> Am I right in saying there are two versions of zmailer?

	In what sense ?  There is old Rayan's version, my and Edwin Allum's
	versions, though they are not THAT different.
