RFC 6186 [0] ("Use of SRV Records for Locating Email Submission/Access
Services") has been approved recently. It defines a method for using DNS SRV
records for e-mail auto configuration (pop, imap, smtp and submission (all with
and without tls)). Its implementation should atempt to retrieve the apropiate
configuration for a domain with the user just typing in his e-mail address.
This could improve the configuration process a lot.
