Unfortunately we get NO_DATA for wrong reasons too, that is why
the current code behaves like it does.
The code, by the way, reads:
if (r != EX_TEMPFAIL)
r = EX_NOHOST; /* Can do instant reject */
r = EX_TEMPFAIL;
This is around line 2110 at CVS version of smtp.c
It all culminates at how getaddrinfo() misbehaves.
("badly" - I am afraid :-/ )
And for that matter, I have thought about doing delayed reports,
but I won't put my finger at them yet.. Meanwhile, have a peek
at ongoing LaTeX -> DOCBOOK-SGML transformation work at:
