Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4.4
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Having many times over the years ended up with a saved reportbug file
due to local email config issues, and always stuggled to find the
runes to resend it easily later, I thought it worth adding some info
to the man page on this subject.

Attached is a patch doing that.

This problem afflicts many so a bit more help on the man page seems a
good idea. I notice that the reportbug template for this package adds
advice on getting local email going. Perhaps that should go in the
manpage too?
