Hi

I have had the same problem. Currently I am trying to sort out my hostname which is causing squid to fail (for me). Perhaps that might be the case for you too.

I too am using RH9 so what I did - which has worked for me - was to edit squid.conf and change the following for
TAG: visible hostname

visible_hostname www.yourdomain.com

Do this with squid shutdown or do a reconfigure (squid -k reconfigure)

This presumes that you have a domain name. I don't know what you should do if you haven't or whether it will upset anything else. Perhaps someone else can answer that. Maybe you could use www.yourname.yourisp.com

From my (limited) understanding of this, it is used by squid for messaging. If there is a page that cannot be reached for example, squid will issue a warning to the user. It will say it is from squid at your domain.


Best of luck. Can't guarantee it will work and so if it doesn't - undo the change and ask again.

If anyone can shed light on why squid can't pick up the hostname - I would be interested too as I think it is the root of my problems with fetchmail/sendmail

Your welcome.

I'm going to keep going with RH9 - until I pull out all my hair !

I will have a look at qmail. Problem is I have invested so much time into sendmail and have used it for the last 5 years - so I SHOULD be able to get it to work, however in reality it is somewhat different !

Best of luck.
