    Is there a way to specify to a symbolics machine that all mail to non
    resolved addresses should be forwarded to a specific machine?

By default, Zmail will pick a host in the local site that has
STORE-AND-FORWARD-MAIL service in its namespace entry when mailing to a
non-local address.

If you want to force it to use a certain host, you can set the variable
ZWEI:*MAIL-NETWORK-HOST* to that host object.  We used to do that.  The
problem is that if that host is down, you'll get an error; if you leave
this set to NIL, then it will try all the hosts with
STORE-AND-FORWARD-MAIL service in turn without bothering the user.
