    Please can you tell me the technical background for which reason /etc/hostname should contain the fqdn.

    I want to know, is this stringently for ispconfig or only a recommendation?

    This is required for amavisd. Without that setting, amavisd will not start and the mail system will not work. So it is required that you set it that way.
