	Umm.. Perhaps there is.  (But following are not verified
	and are thus somewhat uncertain...)

	It is perhaps a bit oversized permission to place those FQDN-
	addresses into   smtp-policy.relay  file, but certainly it gives
	the result.  I think you could place them even in  localnames  file,
	like this:
	those won't match into localnames lookup elsewere in the system.

	In theory the text sent out by the smtpserver is customizable,
	but in practice I noticed that my current way of doing it
	"sucks"...  I can give ONE string, but it would be far better
	to be able to give multiple strings for different uses.
	(Right now the last of the 'message "msg text"' pairs is the
	 one that a matched entry yields.)

	Nope, smells of SIGSEGV.

	Can you attach a debugger into the program before
	you give the deadly input ?
