Topic: iRedMail Setup Question

Hello,

I'm setting up iRedMail 0.8.7 on my new VPS (Linux CentOS Linux 6.2).

My question is:

I haven't changed the DNS settings to my registrar, so I'm presently only ably to resolve to my 'IP'.

The first step in the iRedMail setup describes setting the HOSTNAME.  Should I use my server hostname instead, i.e. 'apollo'?

# Part of file: /etc/sysconfig/network
HOSTNAME=mx.example.com


==== Required information ====
- iRedMail version: 1RedMail 0.8.7
- Store mail accounts in which backend (LDAP/MySQL/PGSQL): MySQL
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version:
- Related log if you're reporting an issue:

Your server hostname must be a FQDN, not 'apollo'. And please make your server hostname resolvable in DNS.
