Spam. However the default configuration, and any sensible re-configuration has a number of
anti-spam measures which will prevent the re-transmisson of spam from James. This makes it
a blackhole for spam.<br />Danny Angus</p>

  +  <li>Update your domain's DNS entries so there are MX records that point to the
machine that is running James.  Note that it is illegal for MX records to point to IP addresses.
 You need to point MX records to a valid CNAME or A name entry, and then map that eventually
to an IP address.</li>
  +  <li>You could alternatively give people an email address with IP addresses.  Most
people will think it's a very strange email address, but hello@[192.168.0.1] is a valid email
address.  Note that you need to wrap the IP address in brackets.</li>
