I've been getting the following message in /var/log/messages ever since I
installed qpopper on my system:
Dec 2 13:09:35 inetgw in.qpopper: (v2.2) Unable to get canonical
name of client, err = 0
Everything works fine, but I always get that message - filling up the log
Anyway, I finally found the solution to this problem....
All clients on my LAN are retrieving mail from mail.<dn> which is
resolvable via DNS and is the same system as inetgw (identified in log
entry above). (named is also on this same box, fwiw.)
Anyway, I solved this problem by adding an entry for "mail mail.<dn>" in
/etc/hosts..... Now, no more log entries....
Can anyone tell me why qpopper couldn't resolve the mail.<dn> name via DNS
and requires an entry in /etc/hosts? Design limitation?
