The original question was

> I am running Solaris 1.1 (SunOS4.1.3) on a SS2.
> It is simply running as a standalone, so it does have NIS running.
> Installation simply set
> /etc/defaultdomainname to (none) since it is the file OS checks before
> launching theNIS service.
> hostname gives you quasar, which is the name of the machine, but when
> a mail is sent to this address, the mail server of the net this machine
> is attached complains about quasar.noname not found.
> Should I simply modify /etc/hostname.le0 so fully qualified name like
> so that the server can recognize this machine and deliver
> the mail?
