Back when (5-6 ? years ago) I first put DC on our AIX mail server, I 
thought to put it in the inted.conf file, as was the old UWIMAP 
invocation.  But a) I had problems with that and b) people here informed 
me that it was much more efficient just to directly invoke it, so I put 
it in the /etc/rc.local file and it has <knock on wood> never failed to 
start and run cleanly.  So....this is an easy one with an easy answer.  :)

Now it's like an apartment in Bed-Stuy: you need three heavy duty 
pick-proof locks, one of those braces that goes from the lock to the 
floor, and bars on the windows.... ==== Stewart Dean, Unix System Admin,
