    Default System mails coming from hostname

    Hi.

    In all my systems I have the hostname and the mail domain. So say mailserver.domain.it and the mail domain is domain.it. Nothing special.

    But in most of my installs the systema mails (mail sent from CLI with the mailx command) have the @mailserver.domain.it domain, which often doesn't exist, or is certainly not a mail domain.

    Other than that, my virus / spam notifications are generated and sent to the mailserver.domain.it domain! And this IS a problem because they're sent to an unexisting address.

    Any idea why this happens? How to fix?
    thanks

    You can either add another domain (using the FQDN as the domain name) and give those email address as an alias to a valid account or you can change the virus and spam notifications so they're sent to the correct address.

    You probably made a configuration error during or after the install, it doesn't happen on my installs.
