I genrally have ifconfiged the machine off the network,
switched, and reconnected. Unless you are talking about a _ver_
heavily uised MTA, being off line for a few minutes does not create a

upto 4 days, so a few minutes while installing a new one are not
significant in most cases)

Is it really your contention that all MTA's should provide for
this configurability, and cooperate with all other MTA packages out
