Re: policydb problem causes mail looping... (2.99.49p8)

Sorry to have bothered everyone again. I was too careless.

This part has been solved; it has nothing to do with the
policydb. It is a localnames problem. I accidentally
created a localnames.db file with zero length, so zmailer
thought that the local host is not local, and keep feeding
itself the same copies of mail.
