Subject FAQ #1 (was Re: Bugzilla 16949)
Date Tue, 11 Feb 2003 09:38:36 GMT
We should try making this plainer, somehow.  Sure, we can say that it is 
in the docs, and that anyone administering a mail server ought to know 
already, but that won't change the fact that we get this problem every 
week!  Obviously, the notices we have about this simpy don't do the trick.

Initially, I thought that maybe we ought to make James fail on startup 
with a big plain message written to both the log and the console when 
there are no DNS servers configured.  Then I realised that that might 
get me fired.  We actually use James with no DNS servers in order to 
process inbound-only mail, with no possibility of relaying.  I think it 
would be good to be able to keep that deployment scenario in our bag of 

We could, however, tone down the fail on startup to a simple warning in 
the log and on the console.  Does anyone have any objections?
