    Could you please clarify this ? I.e. if i specify a domain in my transport map - postfix will - at
    least on FreeBSD or Solaris - try all returned IP Addresses from /etc/hosts till it finds a
    working one - Correct ?

    Furthermore - how can you easily verify if /etc/hosts returns all ips?

    Thanks
