Your client computer name does not need to be changed. As long as you have a zone file for your domain (face2interface.domain) and an mx record within that zone, then you can send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] (given that you have set up your sendmail files correctly) The name on the actual workstation is irrelevant as the mail server does not care what domain or workgroup your windows computer belongs to. It is only DNS and the mail server daemons that must know about each other as mail coming in will be kept or discarded based on the destination username and domain name it is sent to.
