alpine mail malformed address


Hi gang b4 I make a BIG mistake, I'll ask first

alpine recons that I haven't got a fully formed email addr fair:

johnh10000@tux

now I have an always on connection and have a resolveable ip namely
tux.isa-geek.org.

So me thinks if I change my hosts file a bit:

the current one:

127.0.0.1 localhost
#127.0.1.1 tux
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
#127.0.0.1 tux mail.tux.isa-geek.org ftp.tux.isa-geek.org

# www.tux.isa-geek
192.168.1.1 router
192.168.1.3 tux tux.isa-geek.org

######################
# would changing the order here work????????????????????????????????????
#####################################

192.168.1.2 lounge
192.168.1.40 bedroom

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
-------------------------

If not how can I persuade it?
