If this is related to the email patch you sent, then it is presumably
fixed in 2.1.16, unless I have misunderstood. Please check.

The problem here is that VUQNAME is set too late. A possible fix would
be to assume that VSYSNAME.nodename is VUQNAME until it discovers better
some other way. Would this solve the problem for you. 

I don't care whether people use fully qualified names a their hostnames.
Personally I think it is wrong, but that can be discussed. The main
thing is to distinguish between VQ and UQ names -- and that is actually
impossible to do with certainty, unless you have already declared the
domain name.

What is your suggested resolution of the problem?
