getting rid of warning from reportbug

Recently when I was using reportbug to report a bug against mrxvt, I was presented with a warning

$reportbug mrxvt
*** Warning: is no longer an appropriate smtphost setting for
reportbug; please update your .reportbugrc file.

The warning just mentions that you have to change to something else. But it does not mention "to what you should change"? The answer is in the /usr/share/doc/reportbug/changelog.gz under the changelog entry for version 3.18

In ~/.reportbugrc, You have to change the line




Once you do this, the above warning disappears.
