Enable Name Resolution

Hello Guyz,

I have a couple of concerns,

 

In the connectors parameters, there are few parameters related to name resolutions

1. Enable name resolution

2. Name Resolution Host name only

3. Name resolution domain from email.

 

Please if anyone can clear my doubts if I have mis-understood this,  when the above options are set to YES, connectors what it will do it basically does the resolution for domains seens and for the IP addresses PTR as well.

 

If I set this to NO, what would I loose ?

I would greatly appreciate if someone could explain more about this parameters.

Thanks,

 

Moh.
