Falko:
here is my /etc/host file:

#
# hosts This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
# mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly
# used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
# On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
# "named" name server.
# Syntax:
#
# IP-Address Full-Qualified-Hostname Short-Hostname #

127.0.0.1 localhost

# special IPv6 addresses
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts
192.168.1.205 server1.example.com server1



So the question is on this file and the mail files what would i modify if my domain is say "doamin.com" being these files ask for a HOSTNAME and DOMAIN NAME how would i enter it? Sorry to be lame but just not sure on the format.
