FYI: If you just want to relay all outgoing mail to your ISP's mail
server to handle, you can set it's IP address up in the "smtproutes"
control file as a wild-card and qmail won't do any DNS lookups on sends.

 I think you are blind to the fact that the hand you hold
 is the hand that holds you down.  -- Everclear
