WARNING: local host name (digitalwhores) is not qualified; see cf/README: WHO AM I?

While installing sendmail, I got the following error…

WARNING: local host name (digitalwhores) is not qualified; see cf/README: WHO AM I?

Lets edit /etc/hostname and make it digitalwhores.net.

sudo nano /etc/hostname

Lets run sendmailconfig

sudo sendmailconfig

I saw the solution @ http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/1551/what-is-sendmail-referring-to-here/210999 – tnks to Jadeye for alerting me that I might need to restart the server.

  1. I truly appreciate your help!

    Seems (these days) the ‘hard-core’ geek-oids (I grew up with Unix) always have an attitude such as; “You posted in the wrong discussion” or “This has no solution, closing” et, al, nausea!

    Seems no one is very helpful any longer.. So I’m taking the time out to thank you!
