dt> Now you're using shaw.ca for your home domain. Do you own that? Would
you like to e.g. relay mail for all of shaw.ca?
OK, I've invented the domain name petershouse;
the current hosts file follows. Please let me know of any
Isn't there a place to specify the domain, analogous to /etc/hostname?
Unfortunate that these matters aren't mentioned in the hosts
man page. Also, I wonder that /etc/hostname, /etc/hosts,
/etc/network/interfaces and perhaps a few other files haven't
been amalgated into one. Excessive fragmentation increases
the likelihood of confusion and error.
Thanks, ... Peter E.
