    During the CentOS install, when it came time to configure the network adapters it asked me for a hostname. So I entered mail.mymailhost.com.

    I was following a Zimbra on CentOS tutorial that used the same configuration.

    Zimbra Collaboration Suite Open Source Edition On CentOS | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

    Unfortunately they didn't show anything about the hosts file.

    OK, the article is using the wrong term to describe waht they were asking you for. As I mentioned above the hostname is actually 'mail' and what they've asked for and you've entered is the FQDN of the server.

    If you believe that everything else is OK then you can just format the hosts file as I mentioned in my previous post, you shouldn't need to reboot the server for it to take effect but if you feel adventurous just reboot.

    Hostfile is now corrected! Finally I hope...lol. I haven't had the issue yet since the last time, so it will be hard to tell if this worked or not. I guess only time will tell. But so far everything appears to be working just fine with the new setting.

    Thanks Bill. I appreciate the help.


    I think it makes sense for it to be mail since my linux command prompt does read "root@mail" and not "root@mail.mymailhost.com"...........

    I am also running / testing 6.0.8 on CentOS 5.5 and have had my admin console freeze up while trying to log in. It froze up on me with the short name, so I entered the FQDN and I went in ok.

    It seemed like it was trying to bypass the login screen and just re-login, similar to when you do a browser reload.
