is your hostname really "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"? type "hostname" in a shell.

If having an @ in a hostname isn't illegal, it ought to be. I can't be bothered to start searching the RFCs for you, but I fail to see how it can be legal since it would make email address parsing pretty much impossible; possibly URLs as well. Try cathyatalfa.alfanet.com or cathy-at-alfa.alfanet.com, though the atalfa/at-alfa seems pretty redundant given the rest of the domain.
