Case URL in emails...

My server for FogBugz has a host name like server2.foo.com.  I have a DNS record pointing to the same address for fogbugz.foo.com.

Using fogbugz.foo.com works fine, perfect.  However, when emails go out, the URLs are server2.foo.com.  Both URLs work, but I'd like to stick with one host name, fogbugz.foo.com.

Is there any way to accomplish this?

The email just uses the server name that the server reports.  If you go to http://server2 then the server will report it as server2.  Alternatively if you are browsing FB via http://fogbugz, then it will report it as fogbugz.

Your choices are either to modify the code so it always spits out the same server name, or to get people to use the fogbugz url every time they visit the site.  (Probably have to get them to update their bookmarks.)
