The domain which I own is xyz.com Now In the main.cf there is a section as below which says specify your myhostname --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- # INTERNET HOST AND DOMAIN NAMES # # The myhostname parameter specifies the internet hostname of this # mail system. The default is to use the fully-qualified domain name # from gethostname(). $myhostname is used as a default value for many # other configuration parameters. # myhostname = host.domain.tld ---------------------------------------------- based on what i said above can any one let me know what has to be my answer ?
