    220 server1.mydomain.com ESMTP Postfix

    Then I would like to change from server1.mydomain.com to ns.yourdomain.net. How can I make change?

    Run
    Code:
    echo ns.yourdomain.net > /etc/hostname
    /bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
    Also change your hostname in /etc/postfix/main.cf (myhostname and mydomain). Don't forget to restart Postfix.
