Global elm Options

In the global elm.rc file, you must set the options that pertain to your host's name. For example, at the Virtual Brewery, the file for vlager would contain the following:
           # The local hostname
           hostname = vlager
           # Domain name
           hostdomain =
           # Fully qualified domain name
           hostfullname =
These options set elm's idea of the local hostname. Although this information is rarely used, you should set these options nevertheless. Note that these options only take effect when giving them in the global configuration file; when found in your private elmrc, they will be ignored.
