Toward the bottom of the email you see the answer - you have to add it
to DNS. installing a local DNS server on the machine will work, as only
the machines containing the transport and the server need to know how to
resolve the host: the clients only connect via the jabber server

The alternate is to edit config.h within the aim-transport/include dir,
and remove the #define HAVE_ADNS. This will cause it to use normal DNS,
which will block the entire process on lookup.
