Where to the scripts ask to get their hostname from each time?
I have DEFAULT_HOST_NAME = 'discuss.pentax.com'
and in Defaults.py
DEFAULT_HOST_NAME = 'discuss.pentax.com'
mm_cfg.py is for the *LOCAL* settings, and things in there are overridden by values in mm_cfg.py. However, when sending a message the preferred host name is taken from the value set in the main config panel "Host name this list prefers".
Have you been looking at your MTA with the same ferver that you've been looking at Mailman? My bet is that it's some sort of interaction with the MTA, but you haven't mentioned what you're using.
I am using sendmail 8.9.3, I have gone as far to:
Change the sendmail.cf to force it to use the host discuss.pentax.com, changing the reverse DNS for the machine to it matched the A record for discuss.pentax.com changed the hostname on the machine
and (not to sound like a broken record, but people keep emailing me with their wisdom, and never noticed I've already stated this) I HAVE IT SET VIA THE WEB PAGE FOR "Host name this list prefers." set to the RIGHT host.
I put my hand upon her lever, said "let it rock and let it roll." I had the one-arm-bandit fever, it was an arrow through my heart, that's all. Sean Reifschneider, Inimitably Superfluous firstname.lastname@example.org URL: http://www.tummy.com/xvscan HP-UX/Linux/FreeBSD/BSDOS scanning software.
