[Chandler-dev] Additional configuration required for functional
tests to pass

After tightening the spam controls late last week some additional
configuration may need to be done to Linux and winXP boxes for email
functional tests to be able to pass. So far all OSX boxes have handled
the change to the spam controls without a problem.
Jared's explanation on how to insure your box uses fully qualified
domain names is below, additionally this information has been posted on
the wiki here:
Chandler uses the OS's configuration when determining what hostname to
call itself when sending email. If a client does not uses a "fully
qualified domain name" when sending email to smtp.osafoundation.org, the
email will be rejected and Chandler won't be able to send email.
On linux, the command `hostname --fqdn` should return a complete 3-part
hostname (ala mybox.osafoundation.org). If this command returns
'localhost', then the box is improperly configured. In /etc/hosts, the
name of the host should not appear on the "127.0.0.1" line; it should
only appear on the "127.0.1.1" line. If this command returns only your
hostname (no domain), then update your /etc/hosts line to look like:
"127.0.1.1 myhost.mydomain.com myhost".
On Windows, the command `ipconfig /all` should have a domain name in the
"Connection-specific DNS suffix" of the network adapter in use. If that
line is blank, then from the "Network Connections" control panel, click
the "properties" button of your network adapter. Select "TCP/IP", and
then click the "properties" button. Click "Advanced", then the "DNS"
tab. Enter a valid domain name in the "DNS suffix for this connection"
field and click "OK".
For Macs, we have no leads on how to configure this yet. It doesn't
appear that any Macs have failed in sending email to osafoundation.org
