CVS commit: src/libexec/mail.local

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   manu
Date:           Sun May  4 03:03:11 UTC 2008

Modified Files:
        src/libexec/mail.local: mail.local.c

Log Message:
Make sure temporary errors are reported as such, using status code
EX_TEMPFAIL (cannot lookup user through NSS, may be because of an
unreachable NIS or LDAP server), or EX_OSERR (other file or memory
related problems).

Sendmail and Postfix should honour EX_TEMPFAIL and EX_OSERR by
queueing the message.

This avoids problems with transcient NSS errors, where the MTA may
successfully lookup a user at a time while mail.local can fail a
few secoonds later.
