removed 127.0.1.1 hostname hostname from /etc/hosts after installing sendmail/ubuntu
I’ve installed sendmail in ubuntu, bit sending email was deadly slow.
In the file /etc/hosts there was 127.0.1.1 HOSTNAME HOSTNAME
I changed this to
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain HOSTNAME
so 0.1 instead of 1.1 and sendmail was super quick.
Is it a problem that my hostname is not listing to 127.0.1.1 anymore??
