The hostname you enter during the installation "server1.mydomain.tld", will that be the name for the mailserver, sqlserver etc. as well? If not, what is usually done from this point on? Do I need to rename it myself? If, how is it done?
This is the name of a server. A server has exactly one hostname.

I am having trouble receiving mail from the outside. But if the mailserver on a "ISPconfig Single Server Setup" is named "server1.mydomain.tld" then I guess the reason to the problem of recieving mails must be the MX-record:
Thats not related to the server hostname. Just ensure that you have a a-record for mail.mydomain.tld pointing to the IP of the server.
