Fetchmail/Postfix domain problem

Hi I've been using SuSE for about 3 years now and have always set up a mail server through my dial up dynamic connection. Until I bought 9.1 I used Sendmail but Postfix seems to be the default here. I use fetchmail to get my email then I presume postfix to send it to local users.

Unfortunately email is not getting through to the local domains as it is being delivered to <name>@localhost.Hal2000.Oxeye. I have only one machine (Hal2000.Oxeye) but serveral users. Why is it trying to send to localhost.Hal2000.Oxeye? I can send direct from one user to another!!

Below are some configuration files:

# Edit carefully, see /usr/share/doc/packages/yast2-mail/fetchmailrc.txt
set no bouncemail
poll "" protocol POP3 : user "" there with password "*****" is * here ;

# hosts This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
# mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly
# used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
# On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
# "named" name server.
# Syntax:
# IP-Address Full-Qualified-Hostname Short-Hostname
# localhost

# special IPv6 addresses
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts Hal2000.Oxeye Hal2000 Hal2001.Oxeye Hal2001

# NOTE: Many parameters have already been added to the end of this file
# by SuSEconfig.postfix. So take care that you don't uncomment
# and set a parameter without checking whether it has been added
# to the end of this file.
