mailname - the visible mail name of the system
The file /etc/mailname
is a plain ASCII configuration file,
which on a Debian system contains the visible mail name of the system.
It is used by many different programs,
usually programs that wish to send or relay mail, and need to know the
name of the system.
The file contains only one line describing the fully qualified domain
name that the program wishing to get the mail name should use (that
is, everything after the @).
