Check the configuration files for the locally running mta (postfix,
qmail, or whatever you have installed). If you are delivering mail
remotely, then you should the configuration of that mail server as well.
In either case I would start by grep'ing for the old hostname along
find /etc -type f|xargs grep $HOSTNAME
where $HOSTNAME is your old hostname.

I do not use linuxlogo, but suggest you review the script
/etc/init.d/linuxlogo to see where it gets the hostname from.
