Thanks a lot Camaleón, you really know how to search. :-)
On the not so light side of the issue, no, playing with the "/etc/
resolv.conf" setup didn't work for me. This is a live system, and I get
IP from pump, which in turn tampers my well prepared /etc/resolv.conf
file before MTA get started.
Well, at least I have a solution -- reverting to full host name in /etc/
hosts & /etc/hostname, the ugliest solution, but the best I get so far...
