e-mail notification is wrong

It used to work, but now has the actual server name as the url instead of the IP address. Any ideas on how to fix this in IIS smtp set to localhost?

It's because whoever forced the email notification to be sent (i.e. If I assigned you a bug), used that URL to access fogbugz.

In other words, if I go to

http://localhost/fogbugz

then when you get the email from me assigning you a bug, it will say
URL: http://localhost/fogbugz
because FB is just asking the webserver what its address is.

If I went to

http://127.0.0.1 then it would send that.

Just let people know to use the correct url when accessing fogbugz.
