Probably yes, unless you can live with certificate warnings.

I'd change the myorigin parameter.

I am wondering about this only cause in my mind:
I'm using 1 box to do:

Mail Server
Apache Server

Question: can I refer to my server as "mydomain.com" only? Or can I make 2 references:

vi /etc/hosts

eg:
192.168.0.100 www.mydomain.com myhostname
192.168.0.100 mail.mydomain.com myhostname


I'm thinking of this relative to both services running on the same box.
I am sure to some it's a silly question however, I'm only trying to understand a thing or 2 in regards to configuration and setup of the server.


So When Setting up postfix, I can use mail.mydomain.com is my line of reasoning but perhaps I'm wrong in my line of thinking... Guess that's why I'm a noob :-)
You can use any FQDN or IP address that's pointing to the server.
