NM will change the hostname just like dhclient-script does, if you have
not set a persistent hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network. If you have
set a persistent hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network, NM will *always*
use that hostname.

It may be the issue where sendmail is happily unaware of network changes
including hostname changes. If, after connecting, you do '/sbin/service
sendmail restart' does that start things working? The real fix here is
to hit stupid services that don't handle network changes in the face
with a nail-studded board, and repeat if they get back up, until they
stop getting up and just lie there. But failing that, forcing them to
restart via a dispatcher script when network changes occur may be the
quickest alternative.

The hostname was there and listed the whole time, from install (I used
askmethod during install so I could get NM to use static, as GUI didn't
allow me to).

No, sendmail wouldn't still send it. I did go to network service and
relooked at files (ifcfg-eth0 mainly), saw any differences with
NetworkManger and with network. Went back to NM just now and ran epylog
cron manually and it got sent. Sooo, it *might* be working now. So
maybe something in ifcfg helped and allows it to go now?
