Re: mail problem

Modify your '/etc/hosts' file and add the entry 'ora1.localdomain' to the line starting with ''.

This should fool the mail subsystem to deliver it locally properly..

Re: mail problem

Hi Fadia,

The easiest way is to change your /etc/hosts.
The first line should be: localhost.localdomain ora1
With that, ora1 will be an alias for localhost and the domain will be localdomain.


Nothing is more successfull as failure
