Dear SUN managers,
Three responses have been got:
Jed Dobson <firstname.lastname@example.org> - suggesting either a name resolution or a NFS
Buddy Lumpkin <BLumpkin@ijapan.com> - suggesting DNS resolution problem
DAN <email@example.com> - suggesting DNS resolution problem
Summary: Yes, the problem is due to the missing
definition of the SUN Ultra2 hostname in the DNS maps.
(Instead, its alias name was defined in the DNS maps.)
It has been solved, and the mail commands function normally now.
Thanks alot for your kind and prompt advices.
