So I need some software to provide at least send-only email from my workstation before I can enable email notification of print job completion. It seems that I have the choices of sendmail
, and qmail
As I look at installation and configuration of these, it seems that my workstation requires a fully qualified domain name
. That would be something like:
Since my workstation(s) is on a private network (192.168.nnn.nnn), I don't have a domain on my in-house LAN. If I need a "domain name", that tells me that I need to run some flavor of name server (DNS) on my LAN before I can enable CUPS email notifications.
Since private networks
do not route, my private domain is just that -- private. Can I select any jibberish that makes sense to me when I name this private domain? Are there any conventions for such domain names?
Can someone confirm that I'm following the right bread crumbs here?
