I am running 4.7-RELEASE. When I installed freeBSD I made the localhost 
name fuzz.

I am now attempting to get mutt running on this computer.

I cannot send email to the outside world. My email is rejected because 
the doamin part of the address includes the localhost name "fuzz". So 
instead of "[EMAIL PROTECTED]", which is what the ISP expects, mail 
is sent out as being from "[EMAIL PROTECTED]".

In one attempt to get things working, I edited freebsd.mc in a couple of 
places. I defined 'SMART_HOST' as my isp, and included a line 
MASQUERADE_AS('socal.rr.com'). I did make cf, and make install. After 
running sendmail -q it gives me an error message in sendmail.cf "line 
66: unknown configuration line "\n"

I used ee editor to go to line 66 and deleted what was apparently blank. 
Now when I run sendmail -q it's as though nothing occurs, I don't even 
get a mail message telling me my email was rejected.

How can I remove fuzz from my address? Dynamite? I have very little hair 
left, and this day has been really rough on what is left. It's being 
ripped out in big chunks. Sendmail documentation seems to be setup for 
server configuration. I have not been able to find anything for a 
standalone desktop that answers these questions. I've spent two days 
studying about and configuring mutt. Should I just stick with kmail?

Thanks, I really needed to vent!
