POP3: local users uneable to receive local mail
I have set up a Mail-server ( POP3, sendmail, fetchmail, procmail) on a SuSE 9.0 box. Everything works great but local users ( local network: home.com) cant receive mail from each other.
#When I check the mail queue using :
#I get a
host map: lookup (home.com): deferred
Deferred: Name server: pop3.home.com: host name lookup
#also when sending mail with
/usr/sbin/sendmail -q -v
# I get
<firstname.lastname@example.org>...Transient parse error -- messages queued for future delivery
home.com: Name server timeout
.... Deferred: Name server: pop3.home.com: host lookup failure
I have not set up any dns in my network, but have entries of all machines in /etc/hosts
