Well I'm just mindful of Nick Hilliard's previous rants on using
queued SMTP where something like UUCP would be much more suitable.
I don't really expect masses of ILUGers and their windows-using
customers to suddenly jack in their ETRNs. But deliberately,
permanently unreachable primary MXs do get up my nose.
Now, must go play with hoststat :-)
