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:

                    (1)                         (2)                     (3) 
(1) The first thing is my LAN IP address which is on my server.

(2) The next thing is confusing. Let's say i'm hosting this domain on my Ubuntu box and my mailaddress should look something
What should the "" 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
