I have a server which knows it's name:

[root at nagios_server mail]# hostname

Yet everything coming out of sendmail sends as, for example, nagios at localhost.localdomain.

What I'd like to do is have mail come out as someuser at industry.gov.au.  Any change I make to sendmail doesn't seem to have any affect.  I've set the DM/CM config on the box to cover all of the variants I can think of:


Nothing seems to make any difference.

Any advice MORE than welcome at this (frustrated) point.
