The open_network_connection() builtin function is documented to return E_QUOTA
when some machine resource limitation prevents the connection from being made.
In the case of LPMOO, E_QUOTA can be returned if the DNS resolver has not been
installed or is not working. Read the file doc/dns-resolver for more info
about the resolver.

If for some reason you can't or don't want to get the resolver working, you
may be able to work around the problem by using an IP address instead of a
hostname; for example, use "" instead of "localhost" in the code that
connects to the local maildrop to send mail.

I don't think this is particular to LPMOO, but if you (or anyone) find
evidence to the contrary then I'll want to look into it.

The doc/builtins directory documents all of the builtins which are unique to
LPMOO or which have significant extra features.
