Thanks. Great work. But ...

exim-4.83/doc/spec.txt says

| The next two lines are concerned with ident callbacks, as defined by RFC 1413
| (hence their names):
| rfc1413_query_hosts = *
| rfc1413_query_timeout = 0s
| These settings cause Exim to avoid ident callbacks for all incoming SMTP calls.
| Few hosts offer RFC1413 service these days; calls have to be terminated by a
| timeout and this needlessly delays the startup of an incoming SMTP connection.
| If you have hosts for which you trust RFC1413 and need this information, you
