Yes, putting some domain there will get MTA quickly running but it interferes
with anything else such as CUPS, proftp, arpwatch, you name it. They all
time out making bootup impossible.
Most any thing I put there is "invalid", even "localdomain" or better
"localhost". Stuff can be tried out by the hostname command.
Maybe having something in /etc/hosts as well might work.
