    Hi guys, i changed the hostname in the server, with no success, can you give me a hand about this ?

    I did--->

    - change in hosts
    - change in httpd.conf
    - change in named.conf
    - Through WHM "Change hostname"
    - Tryied command 'hostname'

    I missed something ? In the mails continue showing the old hostname, in the mails from server (system mails) and in the mails through users with frontpage. (in the sender address)

    TIA

    Do you know if you have a reverseDNS entry?
    You can find out here: http://www.dnsreport.com/
    The datacenter takes care of it.

    From what I understand some mail servers will not accept mail from servers that do not have reverseDNS.
