Time Event
domain name follies
I've recently gotten fed up with zeropain.com's dynamic DNS service being out and causing my email to bounce since I'm at a "nonexistant site", so I switched my service over to dyndns.org's "homelinux.org" domain name instead. I went through /etc/ and /etc/sendmail and replaced every instance of "zeropain.com" with "homelinux.org", regenerated my sendmail.cf, restarted inetd and sendmail…yet when I send myself test email, the headers look like this:

How do I get rid of that zeropain.com? Am I going to have to reboot? (I thought you almost never had to reboot Linux, just restart certain things.)

Help would be appreciated. Thanks!
