Trying to talk to myself!

Why is it our mail server will only accept mail for our domain and not the
machine name it resides on?
If an email is sent to the machine it spits back (repeatedly)

<smtp hicks.valleynet.bc.ca dan@hicks.valleynet.bc.ca 99>: Trying to
talk with myself!

But dan@valleynet.bc.ca works just fine?

How do I fix it so it accepts for the machine name aswell?
This system is also our primary dns server, if that makes any difference?



ps. We are also going to be accepting mail for a virtual host, soon, on
this system and the same problem occurs.
