I use qmail, the mentioned customer is using PMDF (as far I remember).
Both places we use bind. I would like a bind solution, which
simply discards the bogus MX information.
If it is not possible to make bind junk unqualified MX'es,
I would be happy with a patch (or an explation of why bind
must announce unqualified MX'es).
I think I have pointed out a security problem in bind.
Am I wrong.
