Is it too late to get the RFC changed? This is a bad choice of error
message text on two grounds:
1) the name is not necessarily a host name (it is an MX in email terms);
2) text similar to this is used by BIND libraries to indicate not in DNS.
"domain-not-served-by-us" would be a better short description.
Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
