>From Todd Lubin:


When using a manualroute router specifying route_data with "byname", exim
calls [gethostbyname]. However, it explicitly disables the RES_DNSRCH
resolver option.

For dnslookup routers, there is a search_parents option, but for
manualroute routers it is permanently disabled.

It seems to me that this should either:

1. Be configurable within a manualroute router
2. Default to whatever the system-wide default is (which is often
enabled)

(CentOS 7.4)
