Hi Gilles,

there are multiple reasons behind that:

   deal as far as i'm concerned and not high on my todo.

I agree that this is not a high-prio task. But when I sent a HUP to
smtpd, it was gone afterwards. Thats the unexpected part, but maybe
it is still better then silently ignoring the HUP, still running
the old configuration.

My suggestion would be to mention it in the man page.

Thanx very much. Keep on your good work
