I would like to have the check_* rules in the distribution.

I agree partially to Yann Dirson but I would put in an F):
F) providing access to local network
1) pop3 or Imap
2) no local network
Yann: I think forwarding mail to a local network is not what most of
the users will do. I think the scenario, that linux is used for inet
access (IP-forwarding, gatewaying, masquerading) by dialup and that
mail is stored on the linux server (fetched by Eudora, etc.) is much more
common than a local network with so much nodes, that you have to forward
the mail. I think forwarding is a problem of setting up DNS and MX hosts.
