Description Gerald Teschl 2001-04-27 13:22:49 EDT
If I send a mail to "user@localhost" it works, if I send it to
it does not get delivered:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    (reason: system config error)
Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2001-04-27 16:24:46 EDT
Heh, I remember several people including Alan advocating keeping
"localhost.localdomain" because sendmail and other things would break without
Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2001-05-09 09:50:10 EDT
Fixed in the sendmail-8.11.3-1 rpm I will put into rawhide today.

Thanks for the bug-report,

Florian La Roche
