to miss the root mail local home lan, etc., or I just
didn't make myself clear. I assume from you reply I
should undo the FQDN just set up, but, I must question
that and hope for clarification because amavisd-new,
mutt and postfix seem to want one and didn't work with
that in the conf files, I think in all of them. I
wonder where do I put localdomaine, in the /etc/hosts
file or where?  I've been biting my tounge but can't
resist any longer; why didn't ubuntu feisty set all
this up as default as it should. If it goes in
/etc/hosts, which line entry? there are several more
replies which I'll read before doing any thing more.
Thanks for your input, appreciated, but I think we're
missing something.
