I agree. It is when you then install Net::DNS & Net::Server that the fun
really begins - it went something like this;

Downloaded from the coders site just two weeks ago, so yes, probably out
of date :-) and with nearly everything commented out in the conf. In
fact, the only reason I tried it was to catch spoofing of the 'from/to'
same person. In the end I found an easier way to set this up to stop
external mail claiming to be internal. Anything where the install
process complains of basic syntax / uninitialized values is not
something I would feel confident trusting in production. But that's just
my take on it.
