thinking about it, I don't think we should have a per-user config for dma. 
 It doesn't really work out when using aliases and forwarding.


some cron job running as "nobody" mails output.  You have an alias line

nobody: myuser
myuser: myrealuser at
now if you have a smarthost in your per-user config, how should dma ever 
access this file?  I don't want dma to be setuid root.

Postfix and sendmail usually assume one smarthost and one user/password.
