I've migrated a Leopard server to a new Snow Leopard installation (essentially from scratch).

Sent mail is bouncing from a few recipients servers, with the following message:

The Snow Leopard is set up the "same" as it was previously, but we didn't have this problem before.

In Mail>General>Domain name is "local" and Hostname is "myserver". Should the Hostname be changed to the Domain name?
