	I have this file at my workstation:
-----  /etc/mail.conf -------
#  Zmailer host dependent information
# Where am I?
# Who am I?
# What do I tell people?
# World hack!

	I have had it for ages... (or rather, nic.funet.fi has
	had similar for ages..)

	At the INSTALL file, chapter 7 starts with talk about
	this file...
