Your client computer name does not need to be changed. As long as you
have a zone file for your domain (face2interface.domain) and an mx
record within that zone, then you can send mail to
marty at face2interface.domain (given that you have set up your sendmail
The name on the actual workstation is irrelevant as the mail server does
not care what domain or workgroup your windows computer belongs to. It
is only DNS and the mail server daemons that must know about each other
as mail coming in will be kept or discarded based on the destination
username and domain name it is sent to.
