I don't have problems with MTA  - I'm running qmail on my box for a few years 
already, I'm just interested how to circumvent the problem with "darcs send".

Well, I have experience where servers use smtp authorization and/or does not
allow relaying though their servers.

But, I'm asking how to use darcs' send feature without fqdn, i.e. by using my
ISP's as smtp relay as in a typical dialup setup?

With mutt, I'm setting hostname according to my profile, but what to do with
darcs & sending patches?
