the installer creates the inetrc file correct according to the FAQ.
I also tried to resolve manual in the erlang shell and it always fails.

I did, there are no outgoing SRV queries. Only a A record lookup which 
ejabberd does always when no SRV records are in place or SRV lookups 
fail or time out.

Its an Erlang problem, but because an XMPP server cannot federate 
without SRV lookups I am posting this here.
