DNS to IP not happening


hi all,
I have configured squirell mail and IMAP(cyrus)..
I am trying to test the server in a lan..
my pc's hostname is mine.mail.in
when i try to start squirellmail, giving http://mine.mail.in/squirellmail-1.4.5, the browser doesn't do anything..
i will have to specify the ip address explicitely
http://(ipaddress)/squirellmail-1.4.5, the login page is displayed..
typing the ip everytime and askin ppl in the lab to remember it is a little clumsy..
what could be wrong here??
can anyone help me???

regards
Bharath

You need to map "mine.mail.in" to localhost if it's not a registered domain name. In the /etc/hosts file, just add an entry that says
Code:
mine.mail.in       127.0.0.1
Note, that is a tab between them. If this is a registered domain, then are you able to resolve other domains?

If you want it to be done on the other PCs, then that entry needs added to the /etc/hosts on your DNS server, not just on the local box.
