Description Andrew Novikov 2004-08-10 05:10:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
When I start postfix it wrongly determines the value of the
$myhostname variable as localhost.localdomain although gethostname()
returns real DNS domain name (fqdn btw). I believe the reason is that
reverce DNS record for the postfix' host points to a different name
than gethostname() returns. After disabling
postfix-hostname-fqdn.patch everything started to work as expected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Make reverce dns record and host name different, then start postfix.

Additional info:
postfix-2.0.18-4 works OK

I think you have to fix the dns server.
Closing as "NOT A BUG".
