33.3.4 Loopback Addresses for Circuit Checking
In order to set up a circuit check message path, you must specify an
address that will cause a message to be routed in a loop. This may be
done by sending to a remote address that is configured to then forward
back to the circuit check address. Or a method that may be more
convenient in some cases is to specify a form of the circuit check
facility's own address that embeds the circuit check address within
some explicit routing components, where the explicit routing components
will cause routing along the desired path. For instance:
- When routing through an SMTP host (that allows relaying---note that
many SMTP hosts will not allow general relaying), a %-hack
address form may be used, as in or
in Example 33-2 above.
- To send into and back out of Message Router, you may send to the
circuit check address at the PMDF MRMAN mailbox at the PMDF-MR domain
name, as in in Example 33-2 above.
- To send into and back out of ALL-IN-1 or MailWorks when connected
to by PMDF-MR as an MR TS replacement, you should set up an ALL-IN-1 or
MailWorks account that is configured to auto-forward back to the
circuit check facility and then send to that special account.
- To send a message to an X.400 MTA that the X.400 MTA should then
immediately send back to PMDF and the circuit check facility, send to
PMDF-X400's own X.400 ORname stem, plus /S=circuitcheck, at the
PMDF-X400 pseudodomain name, as in in
Example 33-2 above.
- To loop a message through a PC-LAN mailer, use explicit routing to
specify the PMDF system domain name within the PC mailer name space.
