          One way to do that is in the installer. Another way is by manually editing $JBMS_HOME/server/$SERVERNAME/deploy/mail.ear/mail.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml. Find the block that looks like this:
          <mbean code="org.jboss.mail.smtp.sender.SMTPSender"
          name="jboss.mail:type=MailServices,name=SMTPSender">
          ....
          </mbean>

          and add

          <attribute name="DNSServers">
          <servers>
          <server>123.345.678.910</server>
          </servers>
          </attribute>

          You can add as many "<server>bla</server>" blocks as you like under the <servers> element.

          That is it. Before too long we'll have a GUI admin tool to do this and the config file won't be so nested.

                You CAN but normally you put the IP addresses of your DNS servers. The problem is that "localhost" has to be resolved (generally not a problem) but 127.0.0.1 is not a problem. So put IP addresses. I don't know the IP address of your DNS server. You may be able to find it on Linux or BSD by doing a cat of /etc/resolv.conf for instance. if it is assigned via DHCP you should try and pick a stable DNS server on your network.

                  (btw 127.0.0.1 == localhost)

                      No. Most likely if you don't know what your DNS is or where to find it (its under TCP/IP settings on Windows) then you are probably using DHCP to have your IP address assigned.

                      This means that you likely cannot have an assigned IP address which means its impossible to be a dedicated mail server. If you typed "jboss.org" in your brower and made it here successfully you HAVE a DNS server. However I can't for the life of me remember where to find it on Windows when assigned by DHCP. Anyone else know?

                      You could route the mails to a dedicated mail server, but you need a fixed IP address (and an MX entry on your DNS server) in order to receive them.
