I have MAMP Pro installed and recently configured a local virtual host called:
Now my OSX terminal prompt says
I just noticed also when an email bounced back the raw header also shows test.local:
Received: from cpe-111-111-111-111.lns1.lon.somehost.com ([184.108.40.2062]:22222 helo=testhost.local)
I've tried running...
scutil --set LocalHostName properHostName
…but it hasn't had an effect. Also, if I do override it to the original proper hostname, will there be negative side effects?
