Configuration files (*.cf) use "domain.name" as example settings. This must be changed to "example.com" or "example.name".

Description of problem:
Author of Postfix MTA has agreed that this is a must, and latest postfix
includes this: the example domain "domain.name" is being used by postfix users,
causing mails to be delivered to the owner
of "domain.name", which is the .name registry, Global Name Registry, limited.
This is a configuration error by the user, but RedHat should change this
setting, preventing cron reports (and any other reports) to be mailed to the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): All versions
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Use default settings
4.Check logs, see that internal mails are delivered remotely
Actual Results: .name registry received cron reports.
Expected Results: reports should be accepted by postfix, or deferred when
deliver to example.com or example.name.
Author of Postfix has approved this fix. It's a security issue; the .name
registry can be trusted and does not use the postfix @domain.name mails unless
legitimate, but the data (security reports, postmaster reports, auto-reports
from open-relay-testers etc) flows unencrypted through the web before reaching
This appears to be fixed in RHL 8.0 and later releases....
Should this be closed then?
