In configuring with the m4 technique, many classes are defined for your convenience. You need to be aware of these not only to take advantage of them, but also to avoid reusing their single-character names by mistake. Table 32.1 lists all the macros that the m4 technique uses as of version 8.8.4. Most are described in other sections, but a few are described here. See Section 19.6.30, LOCAL-CONFIG for the general method used for adding members and new class names using the m4 technique.

O is used by the m4 technique to hold
a list of characters that cannot be used in local usernames.
This list is used to detect certain kinds of routing addresses that
might otherwise be difficult to detect. This list
but may also contain a
! if UUCP support is included.
P holds a list of pseudo domains that will not
be looked up using DNS. Unless you use a FEATURE,
this class will only contain a dot. Various FEATUREs will
add appropriate pseudo domains to it,
such as .UUCP and .REDIRECT.
