10 calloutd

The callout verification is usually performed by a special instance of mailfromd (see callout server). However, it is also possible to set up a dedicated callout server on a separate machine. You can choose to do so, for instance, in order to reduce the load on the server running mailfromd.

This stand-alone callout facility is provided by the calloutd daemon.
