No, I'm not sure since I use a smart relay.  The smart relay shows up in
the logs without a trailing '.', so I assumed that mail_host normally
didn't have one.  Sounds like it's not an issue at all.

Correct, so dccm falls back to mail_host.

I don't need delay_checks, so it's not a problem for me.  But if someone
was using the combination of delay_check and SMART_HOST, they won't be
able to use mail_host.  Probably a pretty rare case.
