In the readers.conf man page, two lines in the auth blocks are mentioned:

auth: <auth-program>
res: <res-program>

I currently have:

auth "lan-wide" {
   hosts: ""
   default: "<local>@"
   default-domain: ""
 and I don't have those two lines included. Should I include them, and what should I use 
for <auth-program> and <res-program>. I compiled inn "--with-openssl". However, I don't 
know what these two parameters should be, and the man page doesn't say.
