You have two verbs too who had to your MOO_name (defined in 
$network) : $network:return_address and the 
$mail_recipient_class:receive_message . But don't ask me why, I really 
don't know. A little trick to configure the send mail to when you're wizard:
@set $network.debugging to 1 and try to telnet on a SMTP port of your 
mail server... There is a HELP on-line (most of time) and it's really 
easy to learn about it (and interesting!).  

variation on a theme:

Can be reach too on until 23/08/96
