comment Why does NTP daemon keep listening on UDP6?
Thanks. In case this helps someone, on CentOS 6.6 (and, thus, probably on Fedora and RHEL) the options are in this file: /etc/sysconfig/ntpd.

comment Unable to Telnet into port 25 on CentOS PostFix Server
This helped me (although I used inet_interfaces = all), but the file to edit is actually /etc/postfix/main.cf, not master.cf (the latter does not have the inet_interfaces parameter). I've edited your answer to reflect this.

comment Postfix relay for gmail sending as root
Also, note that changes to the /etc/aliases files (at least for postfix, not sure about sendmail) require: /bin/newaliases ; service postfix restart #(or whatever you use to restart postfix on your distro). That aliases change ensures emails to root on your system get sent to admin@mydomain instead. Then, @c4f4t0r's answer ensures that the from message is also set to something valid, since some servers (e.g. Amazon SES) will reject the default root@localdomain.

This question was answered for a different distro, and was answered in a slightly different way. I understand why you'd want your answer to be definitive, but I think it's a little unfair to close this question as "duplicate." Maybe "similar" is more accurate.

HA! "mental." Yes, I was livid after spending hours HOURS on this problem. EC2's support hasn't helped yet either, telling me to try hostnamectl and nmcli, neither of which persisted the name on reboot. BUT! Your answer made me dig into how to make could-init override the hostname, and, by golly, IT WORKED! Hallelujah! THANK YOU. I'd accept your answer, but I think there are probably reasons to keep cloud-init installed, so I'm posting what to do.
