I know that Scott, however the specific machine cannot be renamed to anything 
else (company policy). Also, Postfix which is run on the same server, works 
just fine configured to use as hostname ( has 
a valid A record pointing to same IP).

All other server apps (eg PHP, mailx, system alerts etc) use system's sendmail 
and have no problem using for both HELO/EHLO and message ID.

If monit was able to send alerts using system's sendmail, it would work too.
Anyway in its current form, I think that is easier to implement a "hostname" 
configurable option.
