I do not quite understand your problems. but perhaps this may help:
Commands and output from this computer:
        pluto:dino {102} cat /etc/dhclient.conf
        interface "re0" {
        send host-name "pluto";
        pluto:dino {103} cat /etc/myname

In NetBSD I only use internal mail, so I have let my router supply the
domain-name ("home")

Kind regards
