Without one, how could I find the address for anyone? Actually, there are
several name-servers around. I have 3 of them listed in my /etc/resolv.conf.

I didn't mean _delete_ it; sorry, I was being facetious. Try renaming it
temporarily, and checking '-require_configs'. If you have lots of problems,
it wouldn't be difficult to rename the files to the original status, or
run 'smailconfig --force' to have smail set up the defaults for you again.
