Then we'll either need a way to configure which server to post to, rather  
than determine this automatically, or alternatively, a per-server posting  
queue, or a queue that logs possible nexthops and marks them "done" after  
1st successful try. This is somewhere between INN's outgoing handling and  
a mail transfer agent...

I'd thought about one of the two latter options, but not yet implemented
