reportbug sends mail to wherever it is configured; the default setup
should be to send mail to bugs.debian.org, not the ISP's smtp server,
since that can't be known in advance. [I don't know if this is the
default now, but it should be the default.]
I now know how retro SCOs OSes are. Riotous, riotous stuff. How they
had the ya-yas to declare Linux an infant OS in need of their IP is
beyond me. Upcoming features? PAM. files larger than 2 gigs. NFS over
TCP. The 80's called, they want their features back.
