Since your mail system handles more than 100,000 messages/day, I would
be happy to assign a DCC server-ID and propose flooding peers.  Please
contact me privately.

To teach a computer with DCC clients to use a private DCC server
by updating /var/dcc/map, try this command

   cdcc "add hostname  RTT-1000 ms  32768 secret"

where "32768" and "secret" are a DCC client-ID and corresponding password
from the /var/dcc/ids file on the DCC server.
The /var/dcc/ids file generated by `make install` contains client-ID
32768 and a generally tolerably secure password.  That client-ID and
password are also put into the /var/dcc/map file on the system, as well
as the /var/dcc/map.txt file that exists only for documentation.
