Sendmail - outgoing emails have Machine name


All,

I have sendmail set up. Everything seems to work except for one problem:

When i send email Outbound, the person receiveing it gets name@localhost.localdomain.com

instead of name@localdomain.com

I can't figure out why the localhost is added.. anyone know?

Add localdomain.com to /etc/mail/local-host-names, restart Sendmail

/etc/mail/local-host-names
# local-host-names - include all aliases for your machine here.
localdomain.com

Re: Sendmail - outgoing emails have Machine name

could you tell me how to do a basic set up for sendmail w/o fancy stuff?
and what is the syntax to use it on command line?
all i know is tha t there are sendmail.cf, sendmail.mc, some m4 utility.
but I don't know more. I know the full domain name of my mail server.
do I need the IP address too?
thanks in advance.
zapa.
