sendmail email address includes localhost name?
 
Hello.

I'm using Slack 9.0. Everything works with my domain name. I can ssh, receive mail, http to the domain. But when I send mail from the machine the email address that sends is user@localhost.domainname.com. Trying to reply to that address bounces obviously because "localhost.domain.com" isn't a valid domain.

I've modified a line in sendmail.cf to read:

Djdomainname.com
#Dj$localhost.domainname.com (this is what the original line was).

I've restarted the service and even rebooted with crossed fingers but still when I send email the address includes the localhost name.

Help!

Edit and solution: I tested this with an IMAP client and the address was fine. I looked at the PINE config file and the domain was blank so I included the domain there and it works fine now. The problem obviously was with the PINE setup rather than Sendmail.

Cheers.
