- SRV for submission is an interesting way for an client to figure
out which server/port it should contact, but what exactly would the

_submission._tcp.qualcomm.com? Should you be looking up
_submission._tcp.184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa (assuming your own IP address
is 220.127.116.11)? And again, has anyone tried any of this?
It would be nice if we had a convention for such a lookup.
