;;; Commentary:

;; If neither sendmail nor Emacs knows what host address to use
;; for this machine, ask for it, and save it in site-start.el
;; so we won't have to ask again.

;; This uses a heuristic about the output from sendmail
;; which may or may not really work.  We will have to find
;; out by experiment.

;;; Code:

(or mail-host-address
    (let (sendmail-configured)
      (with-temp-buffer " mail-host-address"
	(call-process sendmail-program nil t nil "-bv" "root")
	(goto-char (point-min))
	(setq sendmail-configured (looking-at "root@")))
      (or sendmail-configured
	  (let (buffer)
		(setq mail-host-address
		      (read-string "Specify your host's fully qualified domain name: ")))
	  ;; Create an init file, and if we just read mail-host-address,
	  ;; make the init file set it.
		(set-buffer (find-file-noselect "site-start.el"))
		(setq buffer (current-buffer))
		;; Get rid of the line that ran this file.
		(if (search-forward "(load \"setaddr\")\n")
		      (delete-region (point)
				     (progn (end-of-line)
		;; Add the results
		(goto-char (point-max))
		(insert "\n(setq mail-host-address "
			(prin1-to-string mail-host-address)
		(condition-case nil
		  (file-error nil)))
	    (if buffer
		(kill-buffer buffer))))))
