Make sure that you add the line at the end of the file as last line after the comment. Otherwise it will get overwritten.

ISPConfig is adding the hostname itself and a second line with .localdomain because this is needed on some systems. If the original line is not added by ISPConfig automatically, then the hostmname command does not return the same hostname that you set in my.cns as mail hostname, though you have to add it manually.
