Whenever I start up my netbook without an internet connection, I might as well be using windows because it takes forever to start up waiting for "Starting MTA:" which eventually times out and continues my boot process. I'm using exim4, and I don't really want to completely get rid of it (even though I'm the only user on this machine) because some of the mails come from programs with some information that can be helpful.
I tried to change a few settings (since this is just for local mail to user accounts), but it didn't seem to make any difference (setting it to use minimal DNS gave me some error, I'll set it up again and see what it said)
How can I get this to just not take so long when I don't have a network connection? Honestly it shouldn't even need one, since it's all local mail from this machine to this machine.

hostname --fqdn did not return a fully qualified name, dc_minimaldns will not
work. Please fix your /etc/hosts setup.
I don't know what's wrong with my hosts set up. This is after running dpkg-configure
exim4-config and setting up minimaldns as if I had Dial-on-Demand.
hostname --fqdn returns
