As for the $myhostname being an internet address - well, not
always. It can be a local network server only, too. For internal
exchange only. It just needs a working DNS server.

It can be any address but a localhost address, that's what I meant
when I wrote 'it is sure meant that $myhostname is resolved to an
"outside" address (as opposed to a localhost address)'. Localhost
addresses are in the 127.0.0.0/8 range :-)

I understand those match the "localhost" part of my setting.


BTW, everyone using postfix should know the value of a working DNS
;-)

I actually learnt that long ago with sendmail ;-)
