[bug-mailutils] Bug#509810: localhost To: should honor /etc/mailname on Debian
Sat, 27 Dec 2008 01:05:03 +0800
All I know is
$ echo|mail $USER
X-Mailer: mail (GNU Mailutils 1.2)
Apparently /etc/mailname is only being read when constructing the From.
Mailutils on Debian should also use it when constructing the To, like
mutt apparently does.
mailname - the visible mail name of the system
The file /etc/mailname is a plain ASCII configuration file, which on a
Debian system contains the visible mail name of the system. It is used
by many different programs, usually programs that wish to send or relay
mail, and need to know the name of the system.
The file contains only one line describing the fully qualified domain
name that the program wishing to get the mail name should use (that is,
everything after the @).
I.e., the ugly hostname jidanni1.jidanni.org should not appear
anywhere in the headers. We should see jidanni.org only.
