I don't know if you noticed, just to make sure I'll tell you that I used different names for the name of the host and the name of the email server, such as this:

# cat /etc/hosts
Code:       localhost.localdomain          localhost        hostname
Relevant Postfix config:
# postconf -n
append_dot_mydomain = no
inet_interfaces = all
mydestination =, localhost, localhost.localdomain
myhostname =
mynetworks =
myorigin = /etc/mailname
relayhost =
# cat /etc/mailname
Please notice the name versus is registered in my DNS - if I ping from outside, it resolves fine. is not registered in my DNS but it resolves because it's in my provider's DNS. There should be no reason why it wouldn't work this setup. Correct me if I'm wrong.
