Description Gerald Teschl 2001-04-27 17:22:49 UTC
If I send a mail to "user@localhost" it works, if I send it to
"user@localhost.localdomain"
it does not get delivered:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
user@@localhost.localdomain
    (reason: system config error)

Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2001-04-27 20:24:46 UTC
Heh, I remember several people including Alan advocating keeping
"localhost.localdomain" because sendmail and other things would break without
it.

Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2001-05-09 13:50:10 UTC
Fixed in the sendmail-8.11.3-1 rpm I will put into rawhide today.

Thanks for the bug-report,

Florian La Roche
