Whats maybe wrong here?
whats in /etc/mailname
or the nullmailer equivalent?
kid@vs:/etc/nullmailer$ cat defaulthost

Its a virtual server, at present vs.caves.org.au
last I remember, you had to use a valid hostname to send mail.
so it just had to resolve, it didn't have to resolve to you.
if it didn't resolve to you, the bounces would go astray, but worst
case, you needed a valid hostname in /etc/mailname.
i think there is a file for nullmailer that lets you identify yourself
to the mail server.
Later the vs will be dropped when I transfer the main site at
caves.org.au to this virt server.
Basically its so mail from AIDE and root at vs.caves.org.au can get sent
to me at my email address here.
