Hmm, this sounds familiar. Somewhere along the line of setting up
networking on one of my boxes, it got a FQDN set where there should just
be a hostname. Then sendmail was adding the domain name onto the end of
that. Naturally, this didn't work. And I got some peculiar error
e.g. What happened:
my intended hostname: machine
my intended domain name: example.com
actual hostname: machine.example.com
actual domain name: example.com
Services making up a FQDN from the given information, came up
[tim at bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr
126.96.36.199-10.fc7 i686 i386
Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5. Today, it's FC7.
Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
