Default Editing /etc/hosts

I'm trying to set up a mail server using this guide.

But i'm a bit confused about the /etc/hosts. Here's what's confusing me:

Code:
                    (1)                         (2)                     (3) 
              192.168.0.100             server1.example.com            server1
(1) The first thing is my LAN IP address which is 10.0.0.2 on my server.

(2) The next thing is confusing. Let's say i'm hosting this domain on my Ubuntu box www.123.com and my mailaddress should look something mail@123.com.
What should the "server1.example.com" look like in my case?

(3) This make a bit sense to me (alias, wright?)

Thanks - hope not that this is a too stupid question
