Whenever I boot my Debian Etch system and it is connected to the internets via wireless (as opposed to a cat5 cable). It pauses for a while at MTA. Stuff is scrolling along on the screen and then here:
MTA:
it stops for a while, then after about 45 seconds it says
MTA: exim4
and continues on its way.
Not a big problem, but I'm curious ... what is happening? Can anything be done to speed it up?
