Yes, I'd say that's the case. When I set up Linux, I entered a hostname of
frenomulax.frenomulax.net, as a lark, but this is not a real registered domain
name. When I sent a test message using mailx, the 'From:' header shows:
arnie at frenomulax.frenomulax.net

BTW, I am able to post to the Caldera Linux list from Netscape with no trouble,
though there are several other lists, including this one, which do not accept
the posts.
