After installing Fedora core 3 as an upgrade to Red Hat 9, I found that I could not send email. I got this error message:

Host lookup failed: localhost: Name or service not known

The problem was that the /etc/hosts file had been changed; I added this line to fix the problem:     localhost.localdomain   localhost

Probably could use something more secure.
