			CRYPTO WARNING

	This software contains hooks to use external cryptographic
	packages to do traffic encryption over the SMTP channel.

	Because for for example US Government's view of the things,
	you might get nasty comments from US export control people
	if you include the sources of this MTA to e.g. a CDROM.

	I am not a lawyer with detailed knowledge of what is allowed,
	and what isn't for US citicens, but you can always point to
	the sources at  ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/unix/mail/zmailer/
	and at the web-server  http://www.zmailer.org/


	There is a way to quickly construct US ITAR compliant source,
	by executing command  'make dist-usa',  the resulting TAR
	package is exportable out from USA.


	UPDATE 28-May-2000:  US Crypto SOURCE export rules have been
			     relaxed, but binary distributions are still
			     fairly strict -- doesn't make much sense
			     if one can simply collect together suitable
			     sources and simply compile it...
