Hi,

I have this problem

my email server's DNS name is

ns1.mydomain.com, and it is registered in the reverse DNS also with
that name, when i installed my server at the hostname i entered

centos-server.mydomain.com

when i tried to send an email from the root console with

# mail root

the email is returned saying that

root at centos-server.mydomain.com, could not be verified

i used the command
# hostname ns1.mydomain.com
and also edited the file.

/etc/hosts,
but i have the same result, the hostname did not change, i even
restart my server with no luck.

what am I missing?

regards,

Guillermo.
PS my server is a CentOS 4.4, with postfix
