	I have many hosts listed in my  /etc/hosts  files, but
	those are for finding addresses for a few extremely
	important machines in my setup -- it does not take part
	in local system interface identity definitions, for example.

	With sendmail you use  Cw  and/or  Dw  definitions to
	list all those domains that the host handles locally.
	With ZMailer you use  MAILVAR/db/localnames  file.
