I am preparing for sending the hosts I found a Jabber message. Just want
to prepare some configuration advice first, that I will link in my message.

Maybe I will also reconfigure amessage to not accept connections on port
5269 at a later time. This will cause servers still having the wrong
configuration to fail connecting to amessage.

The really bad part is, that jabberd 1.4.3 did already contain
_xmpp-server it its default configuration, but many of the hosts doing
wrong DNS resolving are using jabberd 1.4.3. It seems that these hosts
are using a configuration file, that has been written for an older
version of the server software.
